You never needed me

I’m gonna be out of sight
Disappearing in the crowd
Don’t you feel no more blues

Most people have no right
The sun’s their only light
And they don’t have as much as you

But I can see that these roses are new again
Though they smell like the ones before
And I’m getting to you
As if I were for free
Even now you’re pretending
You never needed me

Wish I could hold you tight
But I might as well have died
And now there’s nothing left to do

Most people have no right
At least you have tried
They’ll never have as much as you

Say it wasn’t you
No it couldn’t have been you
Say it wasn’t you
I’ll set you free if you do
