You don't need to love me
Or tell me that you do
Don't make me any promises
Just promise we're not through

Don't give me one damn thing,
I won't let you call this greed
Just let me give to you
It's the only thing I need
I know that this can work
If you plant one simple seed, you'd see it grow
You don't need to love me...
To know

You don't need to need me
It's better that you don't
If each of us can walk away
It won't matter that I won't
We'll both be self contained
But together not alone
You can keep me in the dark
Hell, its all I've ever known
But we both could use a friend
Who will always check the phone
And take the call
You don't need to need me...
At all

Let me be your emergency contact
Your occasional plus one
Your excuse to take a sick day when the forecast calls for sun

We can keep on being lonely
But we don't have to be apart
And I'll never even ask you to let me have your heart
So, I'll never break your heart
No, I'll never break your heart

You don't need to love me to let me help you through
You don't need to confide in me, I've got crap enough for two
You don't need to answer
I'll know before you do
But hear me
And believe me
That you don't need to love me
The way that I love you
