Goodbye, so long
Were the last words from you
Seems like you're over
All the goodness we knew

You think that you're strong
You think that you don't
You don't need no one
Well, I was talkin' to some of your friends
Just to see how everyone was doin'
And they said you needed me

Said it was something you'd never admit
But it was hard to see you going through it
They said you needed me
Guess I'll suffer 'til I'm where I belong
I'm under the pressure
But I'll keep being strong

You say that you're strong
You say that you don't need anyone
What in the world are you telling your friends
I get confused every time I see them
They said you needed me

I know the people talk just for the thrill
But the fact of the matter is still
They said you needed me
Take your time, re-invent your mind
You'll feel better, you'll feel stronger
Then decide if I'm in your life
For forever or longer

You think that you're strong
You think that you don't
You don't need no one
Well, I was talkin' to some of your friends
Just to see how everyone was doin'
And they said you needed me

Said it was something you'd never admit
But it was hard to see you going through it
They said you needed me
