​You Don't Have To Prove Yourself

This song is by The Fixx and appears on the album Want That Life (2003).

Sitting there eating your heart out
Jealous of people who don't seem to question life
Caught in a maelstrom, missing the moment
Rhyme without reason, chained to your bed
Should have done this, would have done that
Superficial life always finds you in a trap
Still you judge, bear the grudge, anyway

You don't have to prove yourself to me
We don't have to judge each other constantly
You don't have to lose yourself for me
It's enough to breathe together, letting each other be

Another year slipping between us
The tree's grown, what have we to show
For all the time spent in excess
Will we say, 'if we'd only known'
Could have done this, would have done that
Should have pulled a rabbit from our hats
But we still play the game the same anyway

There are times I see through the madness
Clues in our instincts, like the urge to run wild
Talking to people, dance 'round the fire
There is communion in all our desires
Let's drop the act, face the facts
Two ends of the same stick, you and me
