​Not for You

This song is by Natalie Bassingthwaighte and appears on the album 1000 Stars (2009).

Knocked down, unappreciated
Day is losing grip on the light
And everywhere I turn there is night
Locked out and confused I waited
I saw but never opened my eyes
Alone together blinded by lies

And I could never get through
'Cause I was never with you

If I gave you the world would it be enough for you, not for you
If I tore out my heart and my mind and wrapped them nicely, yeah
I can deal with the hurt and the blame, but not for you, not for you
And I don't wanna stay, I can deal with the pain, but baby, not for you

I kept all the focus and nerve
Was answering your every call
And making sure that we had it all
You reap what you sew and I burn
And love can be a devious snake
Pretending to be real when she's fake

And I could never reach you
'Cause I was never with you

If I gave you the world would it be enough for you, not for you
If I tore out my heart and my mind and wrapped them nicely, yeah
I can deal with the hurt and the blame, but not for you, not for you
And I don't wanna stay, I can deal with the pain, but baby, but baby

Not for you
I don't wanna stay
Not for you

(If I gave you the world would it be enough for you)
Never enough for you
(If I gave you the world would it be enough for you)

If I gave you the world would it be enough for you, not for you
If I tore out my heart and my mind and wrapped them nicely, yeah
I can deal with the hurt and the blame, but not for you, and not for you
And I don't wanna stay, I can deal with the pain, but baby, not for you

Knocked down, unappreciated
Day is losing grip on the light
And everywhere I look there is night
