I'm restless, in my dreams I long for you
I'm careless with the things I own because of you
Speechless for all that we had is what we disregard now
Feel emptiness

You have had enough,
But this time I see the truth
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more

I'm restless 'cos you don't love me like I love you
I'm restless 'cos my love just ain't coming through
Tell me how can your love gather so much of hate
Tell me how can you love, when we do not practice what we preach
Did we forget all we have been through
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of light you brought through...
There is now darkness surrounding my world
There is now darkness surrounding my world
If you don't come now, Lord, if you don't come now, I'll die

You have had enough,
But this time I see the truth
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more

And in the naked light, I see a brighter day
And at the end of the road, I will sit and smile and say:

You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more
You don't need me no more
Now my work has been done and I set you free
You don't need me no more, you don't need me no more
My work has been done, breath, and so I set you free
You don't need me no more, you don't need me no more
So I set you free, so I set you free, so I set you free
You must go
Oh I set you free

And in the naked light, I see a brighter day
