Written by Robbie Williams and Stephen Duffy

When we were only 17
And thrown into society
That was the end of you and me
From what we could have been

And if we didn't keep in touch
I guess we didn't care that much
We never understood that stuff
But now I need you

I never meant to let you down
But lettin' you down was easy

Didn't it break your heart
Maybe I'm just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your lives, in your heart
Don't say yes just to please me
If you're still you and you aren't
But don't say no

We fought togethe, are laughed together
Said things that we hoped were clever
The thought of missing you forever
Makes me wanna cry
And now that you've grown up to be
A sentimental memory
Are you still you 'cuz I'm still me
At least I hope so

A life beginning somewhere else
It was our time to die

Didn't it break your heart
Maybe I'm just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don't say yes just to please me
If you're still you and you aren't
Don't say no

So, what do you know
Where do you go
Has it been fun
Oh did you survive being buried alive
Like I did

Didn't it break your heart
Maybe I'm just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don't say yes just to please me
If you're still you and you want
Don't say no

Didn't it break your heart
Maybe I'm just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don't say yes just to please me
If you're still you and then you aren't
Don't say no
