I've gone past the wanting you
Way past the needing you
I've learnt to be stronger
Ironically because of you

I thought you were important to me
Essential to my being
It's taken me this long to realise
That all I'll ever need is me

So don't talk to me, don't look at me
You don't even have to pretend to love me
Honestly it doesn't matter anymore
Don't ask about me, don't pretend to worry
Honestly it doesn't matter anymore

I waited for your kisses
Your special hugs goodnight
Now I only hug my pillow
Dried tear stains from last night

I thought if I hurt, you'd comfort me
You'd hold me and whisper: It's ok
But when I laid myself bare to you
You're the one who caused me pain

So don't talk to me, don't look at me
You don't even have to pretend to love me
Honestly it doesn't matter anymore
Don't ask about me, don't pretend to worry
Honestly it doesn't matter anymore

I've given up trying to be
The person of your dreams
Because that person will not exist
As long as I am me

I'd rather be happy by myself
Than be sad when I'm with you
So I give you leave to hate me
Honestly it doesn't matter if you do
