Don't be so scared, we will not lead you on like you've been doing for weeks.
So you're selfish, and I'm sorry.
When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast.

[Chorus:]
Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you,
'cause I wouldn't believe you if you said the same to me.
Near death, last breath, and barely hanging on.
Would you believe me if I said I didn't need you?

Don't be scared to take a second for reflection,
to take a leave of absence, see what you're made of.
So I'm selfish, and you're sorry.
When I'm gone you'll be going nowhere fast.
So who's selfish, and who's sorry?

[Chorus]

Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
Don't believe a word you've heard about me.
Don't be so scared. It's harder for me.

[Chorus]

Someone, somewhere said some things that may have sparked some sympathy, but don't believe.
Don't believe a word you've heard.
