I'm not gonna beg you for nothing
I'm not gonna beg you for love.

Straight talk, give me the straight talk.
Tell me what's on your mind if it ain't love.
I'm not gonna beg you for nothing.
I'm not gonna beg you for your love.

Scared now, what are you scared of?
Afraid I might fall on my knees and break down?
I'm not gonna beg you for nothing.
I'm not gonna beg you for your love.

Don't you think you can take me for pretty little ride.
I know "once upon a time" and "ever after" is a lie.
I'm not gonna beg you for nothing at all.
There's nothing I want from you, nothing you can say or do.
There is nothing I want for you to say anyway.

I'm not gonna beg you for nothing.
I'm not gonna beg you for your love.
