You can have it
I don't want it
An' when you've got it
I'll be gone

It won't matter
What you're sayin'
When the damage
Has all been done

Can't seem to keep the faith
As if that's all I need to do
I'd rather walk away than
Take what belongs to you

You can have it
I don't want it
And when you've got it
I'll be gone

It won't matter
What you're sayin'
When the damage
Has all been done

Some words will cut you down
Like you were only in the way
Why should I stand this ground?
It won't hurt as much to say

You can have it
I don't want it
And when you've got it
I'll be gone

It won't matter
What you're sayin'
When the damage
Has all been done

Sometimes we're blinded by
The very thing we need to see
I finally realize that you
Need it more than you need me

You can have it
I don't want it
And when you've got it
I'll be gone

It won't matter
What you're sayin'
When the damage
Has all been done
The damage
Has all been done
