You Don't Need Me

From the Michael Andrew album Whispers
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

This is the B-side of Nothing At All. I had the title so just sat down in the studio one afternoon and knocked it out in about two or three hours. The solo was done on the first take. The chord progression in the chorus is an old one I've known for about as long as I've been playing piano, so I'll probably use it again sometime.

Lyrics

Rain is falling
Falling from the sky to the ground
You're the one I live without
I fill my days with pain and doubt
Every moment seems to drown in the sea

And I know that you don't need me anymore
Since the rain started falling on me
And I know that you don't need me anymore
Since the rain started falling on me

Rain is falling
Telling me that I'm all alone
I search for you and get nowhere
I call your name and you're not there
Why don't you hurry home to me

How am I supposed to carry on
When you were all that I had
But ever since you've been gone
I know it hurts so bad

Tears are falling
Cried for you since you went away
I know I will survive
If I can stay alive
Maybe I will learn someday to see
