Let Me Be

I tried to bring you flowers,
you say the stems are too long.
I cut them down so you would like them,
you say the color’s too strong.
Feels like I can’t do a damn thing,
without you tellin’ me I’m wrong.
I ain’t here for your advice,
I don’t keep what don’t belong.

So,
stop your cryin’ and just let me be.
I ain’t lookin’ for no company, that can’t
‘ppreciate I’m barely gettin’ on by,
darling, without you I’ll be fine.

And in our final hour,
you had me feeling so cold.
You’re tryin’ to pick a fight,
this routine has grown old.
Feels like I can’t do a damn thing,
without you tellin’ me I am wrong.
I ain’t looking for more problems,
I don’t keep what don’t belong.

So,
stop your cryin’ and just let me be.
I ain’t lookin’ for no company, that can’t
‘ppreciate I’m barely gettin’ on by,
darling, without you I’ll be fine.

Mmmm, we can say that we tried,
we can say that we tried,
we can say that we tried. (repeat 4 times)
