I can stand it as long as he can
'Cause I just don't need him anymore
He's got it in his mind his leavin's hurt me
That I sit and cry while he paints the town.

All this time he's thinking that I need him
When really it's the other way around
I can stand it as long as he can
'Cause I just don't need him anymore.

--- Instumental ---

I'll wait here by the phone a few nights longer
I'll give him every chance to save his heart
He's only out dancing with a new love
Just to keep from falling all apart.

I can stand it as long as he can
'Cause I just don't need him anymore...
