You say you're gonna leave
I need time to sit and think
I'm losing part of me
Oh, will I be complete

A blanket or a crutch
A mother's words, a lover's touch
These are not the things
I'll lose, oh if you leave

If you leave who will emasculate me
If you leave who's gonna step on my dreams
If you leave who's gonna call me a loser
Who's gonna give my heart bruises
Who's gonna bring me down if you leave

So valuable to me
An attitude condescending
You stick the knife in deep
And twist with such dexterity

If you leave who will interrogate me
If you leave who's gonna step on my dreams
If you leave who's gonna tell me I'm crazy
Who's gonna try and replace me
Who's gonna bring me down if you leave

If you leave who will just tolerate me
If you leave who's gonna step on my dreams
If you leave who's gonna say I'm not funny
Who's gonna spend all my money
I won't find someone else to torture me if you leave

At least not for free
