DOWN THIS ROAD

I DONíT NEED YOU

TO HELP ME DOWN THIS ROAD.

I CAN STAND UP ON MY OWN TWO FEET

MY BACK CAN LIFT THIS LOAD.

THEREíS NOTHINí I CANíT DO,

WITH MY BODY AND MY SOUL.

I DONíT NEED YOU

TO HELP ME DOWN THIS ROAD.

 

I DONíT NEED YOU

TO TELL SOMEONE MY WORDS.

I DONíT NEED YOU TO STAND AND SHOUT,

WHEN YOU THINK THAT IíM NOT HEARD.

AT TIMES IíM HARD TO UNDERSTAND,

WHAT I SAY MIGHT SOUND ABSURD.

I DONíT NEED YOU

TO TELL SOMEONE MY WORDS.

 

AND WITH THIS LIFE WE LIVE,

I KNOW THERE IS A REASON.

FOR EVERYTHING WE GIVE,

RETURNS WHEN ITíS THE SEASON.

IT MAY SEEM I DONíT APPRECIATE,

YOUR BEAUTY AND YOUR SIMPLE GRACE.

THE LOVE YOU GIVE, MEANS SO MUCH TO ME.

 

BUT I DONíT NEED YOU

TO TAKE ME BY MY HAND.

I DONíT NEED YOU TO SYMPATHIZE,

OR SAY YOU  UNDERSTAND.

IíLL HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS,

BUT IíLL DO SO AS A MAN.

I DONíT NEED YOU

TO TAKE ME BY MY HAND.
