I can't afford

To be seen alone

I need you here

I need to atone

For all I've done

I've done so much

You break me down

A single touch

BASS AND DRUMS CUT OUT FOR A BAR, JUST GUITAR

I held you tight

I couldn't live

Without you here

I had nothing to give

Some broken heart

This love destroyed

There's far too much

For us to avoid

But I can do without you

(These days)

Yeah I can do without you

(For a little while)

KICKS INTO GUITAR BREAK

I prayed to God

With no belief

You let me down

With no relief

I paced the floor

I broke my heart

I did my best

To come apart

But I can do without you

(These days)

Yeah I can do without you

(For a little while)

(x a few)

Because you made me ruthless

(These days)

Yeah you made me ruthless

(Forever!)

CUTS BACK DOWN TO GUITAR, BUILDS BACK IN FOR OUTRO WITH DIFFERENT SECOND GUITAR PART

But I can do without you

(These days)

Yeah I can do without you

(For a little while)
