​Don't Need You

This song is by Cowboy Junkies and appears on the compilation Por Vida - a Tribute to the Songs of Alejandro Escovedo (2004).

There's Heaven, then there's somewhere else
And those that fall between
The cracks and land upon their feet
With the rhythm of the King
But most they sway from side to side
Just to keep the story lit
And guide the rest across the rooms
The borders and the lines

I don't need you
Like you don't need me
Someone can wish you everything
Then take all that he gives
And tie a rope around the neck
Of the promises he gave
The time he takes to twist his lies
Just to keep his story lit
And you wish you would have bit your lip
Then followed him to sleep

I don't need you
Like you don't need me

There's Heaven, then there's somewhere else
And those that fall between
The cracks and land upon their feet
With the rhythm of the King
Me, I sway from side to side
Just to keep this story lit
And hold your hand across the rooms,
The borders and the lines

I don't need you
Like you don't need me
You don't need me
