"I Just Need Myself" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Michael Stephen Dempsey....
I know that I don't love you,
But I tell you that I do.
But I only buy you flowers to get what I want from you.
You say that if you leave me, it will put me on the shelf,
But I don't need you, girl, I just need myself!
I just need myself!

You trust in all my lies,
You believe in what I say.
You think I'll be with you forever so you let me have my way.
I say "Stay with me, baby!" and I lavish you with wealth,
But I'll make it then I'll leave you, 'cause I just need myself.
I just need myself!

I know that I don't love you,
But I tell you that I do.
But I only buy you flowers to get what I want from you.
You say that if you leave me, it will put me on the shelf,
But I don't need you, girl, I just need myself!
I just need myself!

I just need myself!
I just need myself!
I just need myself!
I just need myself!
I just need myself!
I just need myself!

I just need myself.

    General CommentThey didn't waste anytime moving away from the more "punk" sounds of The Easy Cure. IMO - just as good as their other songs and styles. You have to include such songs when appreciating the Cure for who they are and have been for the last 30+ years.
