[Verse 1:]
Tell me whatcha say now?
Tell me whatcha say
Come again?
If you cannot stay down
Then you do not have to pretend
Like there is no way out

I shoulda never let you in
Cause you got me face down

[Bridge 1:]
And don't take it personal
But you're the worst
You know what you've done to me

And although it hurts I know
I just can't keep runnin' away

[Hook]
I don't need you (x4)
But I want you
I don't mean to (x4)
But I love you


[Verse 2:]
Tell me whatcha say now
Tell me whatcha say?
You said that you would come again
You said that we would remain friends but
You know that I do not depend on
Nothing or no one

So why would you show up
So uninvited then
Just change my mind like that

[Bridge 2:]
Please don't take this personal
But you ain't shit
And you weren't special
Til I made you so
You better act like you know
That I been through worse than you

I just can't keep runnin away

[Hook]
I don't need you (x4)
But I want you
I don't mean to (x4)
But I love you

[Verse 3:]
Everybody's like, he's no item
Please don't like em
He don't wife em
He one nights em

I never listen,no
I should have figured though
All that shit you was spittin', so unoriginal
But it was you, so I was with it
And tell you the truth, wish we never did it
Cause I usually do stick to the business
But you came out the blue and then you just flipped it
God damn baby, my mind's blown
I be forgettin' you live in a different time zone
I think I know what this is
It's just the time's wrong
And yea I know what you did
But baby I'm grown
And my love is patient
And kind, and shit
If this is real we can build
And do different types of shit
If you was really the realest
Wouldn't be fightin' it
I think your pride is just

[Bridge 3:]
In the way
(like a bitch)
Funny how everything changed
Once you got all that you wanted
Nothing was ever the same

[Outro (x2):]
I don't need you (x4)
I still want you
I don't mean to (x4)
But I, but I love you
I don't need you (x4)
But I want you
I don't mean to (x4)
But I love you

    This song means something to everyone. More people need to hear it. Building walls help so much until someone climbs them and gets in to your safe sanctuary, you trust them and they leave. Your walls aren't down, you just build higher, and someone manages to climb them, and then leave, so you build higher and someone still gets in and what happens? You push them away. And they get sick of that so they leave. You just need to find someone who will get rid of your wall and build you a home.

    This songs makes me think of a previous relationship. I can totally relate to the lyric. I was and still am a fiercely independent woman. I never need him. He took me through so many hot and cold moments in a years go relationship. My family felt he was out of my league but I loved him so I did everything to stay in the relationship while he did not nothing to make it flourish. There was talks of him being unfaithful and cheating everywhere. We would have serious discussion that would lead nowhere. I kept settling for crumbs. One day I just grew tired of being hurt so much for lovin him I decided to love myself more and cut him loose.

    This song makes me think back to a previous abusive relationship. The lyrics to this song made me feel like they were written for me and my experience at the time. I was and still am a fiercely independent woman. I didn't need him, we would break up and make up much to the horror of my friends who felt he was completely put of my league, but through it all I loved him. He would cheat on me, we would argue, he would push me and bruise me; hurt me in ways unknown. Many a time I thought about killing him after these moments. I settled for letting him go, pressing charges, and pushing for a restraining order against him. I haven't looked back.
