When you’re left alone
don’t come back to me.
You did this on your own
and I’m not what you need.

You took all the credit
for everything I did,
But you conveniently forget
what you never said.

It’s one hell of a cover up
to make you feel better.
Just because I got up
and out of your grimy gutter.

I did that without you
and I could do it again.
Time for the brutal truth,
I haven’t needed you since.
