"You Don't Need" as written by and Jane Siberry....
Well I think it was the hardest
when I saw you look at him
in a way I thought was only meant for me
inspired by me
and my heart is black and heavy
like the Sackville foundry slags
and it heaves once
and it sighs once
and then there's nothing more

you don't need anybody
you don't need any comfort
you don't need any lovers
you can do it all by yourself
you don't want anyone to want you
you don't want anyone to need you
and I think I have myself almost convinced

and I walk out on to the marshes
and my cheeks are burning white
and this hood is your rejection
and my pain is your connection
and a bird I don't recall call
don't recall call
don't recall

you don't need anybody
you don't need any favors
you don't need any lovers
you can do it for yourself
you don't need anyone to want you
you don't want anyone to need you
and I think I have myself almost convinced
I think I have myself almost convinced
I think I have myself almost convinced
I think I have myself almost convinced

and I walk to the marshes
and the frozen furrows thicken
and I fall into the tundra
and the tundra is my lover
and I lie here
and I wait here
and I raise one arm unto the sky
and if I raise it high enough and hold it long enough
the snow will pull me back through to you

you don't need anybody
you don't need any favors
you don't need any lovers
you can, can get off all by yourself
you don't need anyone to want you
you don't want anyone to need you
