If You Don't Want Me

lyrics

I've taken my time
And I've given it
But you've got your life
And you're living it

And it feels like Fall today
And a feeling of change has washed over me
And I've got only one thing to say

If you don't want me...
I don't want you

Maybe I've tried a little too hard
And pushed you away just a little too far
But I'm too old to pretend
That I can't see the imminent end
So it's good night and lights out, my friend

If you don't want me...
I don't want you

I've gone over everything
That I can think to change
And I've given enough of my soul
I'm tired of wasting my time on futility
So now I'm releasing your hold

If you don't want me...
I don't want you

So I'll go it alone
As I always have
There's no use in fooling myself
In my little world there is no one else
And I'm thinking I like it that way

If you don't want me...
I don't want you
