He Don’t Need Me

I stepped into the heat

of that Arizona sun

looking towards the future

that I’d thought had begun

I wrapped into his arms

on the day that I arrived

warmth and love and laughter

I finally felt alive

But when he sleeps

his dreams are not of me

When he smiles

he shines, but not for me

Through his eyes

my heart, he doesn’t see

I tried to give

But he dont’ need me

Giving up a lifetime

he promised he held the key

Leaving Arizona

a bus to Tennessee

Miles spread out behind me

He’s the best I’d ever known

Making painful choices

Hating loving alone

Cause when he sleeps

his dreams are not of me

When he smiles

he shines, but not for me

Through his eyes

my heart, he doesn’t see

I tried to give

but he don’t need me

No he don’t need me

He don’t need me
