I Don't Need Love

8-Old Stuff

I don't need love.

I don't need anybody to give a damn about me.

I don't need anything.

Then again maybe I need an escape.

I don't need sleep.

I don't need people to come and try to ruin my life.

I don't need to laugh.

Then again maybe sometimes I need to cry.

Laying in quicksand on a peaceful beach.

The answer to your dreams just out of reach.

Something's stuck to you sucking like a leach.

Forget your wants, forget your needs, forget your love.

I don't need hope.

I don't need books or tapes or tv.

I don't need shit.

Then again maybe I just need you.
