Hazel O'connor – Not For You lyrics
{Words & Music: Hazel O'Connor}

Don't promise you'll never leave me
Cos, that would be a lie
We don't perceive the change of time
Tomorrow's the throw of the dice
Believe me I have tried for you
As much as I could

But I wouldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't give up my freedom
Not for you, or for anyone else (for you)

I guess I've lived alone too long
To make this compromise
I know that this is hurting you
I've seen that look in your eyes
Oh, write me off as just another one
Who couldn't live up to your ideals

Cos I couldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't give up my freedom
Not for you, or for anyone else (for you)

So take a walk - (talk talk talk)
So take a walk - (talk talk talk)
So take a walk - (talk talk talk)
To take a walk - blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Don't promise you'll never leave me
Cos, that would be a gross lie
We don't perceive the change of time
Tomorrow's the throw of the dice
Oh write me off as just another one
Who couldn't live up to your ideals

Cos I wouldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't (couldn't) I wouldn't (I wouldn't)
I couldn't give up my freedom
Not for you (not for you)
I couldn't give up my freedom
Not for you, (or for anyone else)
I couldn't give up my freedom
Not for you
