My friends stop calling me
They said I need to tell you to set me free
But I don't want to let you go

When my situation gets me down
I think about the way we used to run the town
And now you won't let me go
It's the sweetest thing I'll ever know

My own, my own worst enemy
I can't get enough when you sing to me
The people wouldn't understand
I'll never be an independent man

My own, my own worst enemy
The only thing I'll ever need

I know that I'm lonely in your eyes
I'm just one of a million guys
And I don't want to let you go

And when these long nights get me down
I think back to the way we used to run the town
You saw me and you shut the door
And it only made me love you more

My own, my own worst enemy
I can't get enough when you sing to me
The people wouldn't understand
I'll never be an independent man

My own, my own worst enemy
The only thing I'll ever need.
The only thing I'll ever need.

How can I be strong?
When they play my song?
How can I be strong?
Really turn me on

My own, my own worst enemy
I can't get enough when you sing to me
The people wouldn't understand
I'll never be an independent man

It's my own, my own worst enemy
The only thing I'll ever need
The only thing I'll ever need
My own, my own worst enemy
The only thing I'll ever need
The only thing I'll ever need
