Now I'm in town, break it down, thinking of making a new sound  Playing a different show every night in front of a new crowd 
That's you now, ciao, seems that life is great now
See me lose focus, as I sing to you loud
And I can't, no, I won't hush
I'll say the words that make you blush 
I'm gonna sing this now

See, I'm true, my songs are where my heart is
I'm like glue, I stick to other artists
I'm not you, now that would be disastrous 
Let me sing and do my thing and move to greener pastures
See, I'm real, I do it all, it's all me
I'm not fake, don't ever call me lazy
I won't stay put, give me the chance to be free
 Suffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you at all
You need me man, I don't need you

You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you
You need me man, I don't need you at all
You need me

I sing and write my own tune
And I write my own verso 
Don't need another word-smith to make my tune sell
Call yourself a singer-writer. You're just bluffing 
Your name's on the credits and you didn't write nothing
I sing fast, I know that all my shit's cool
I will blast and I didn't go to Brit School 
I came fast with the way I act, right 
I can't last if I'm smoking on a crack pipe

And I won't be a product of my genre 
My mind will always be stronger than my songs are
 Never believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya
 Always read the stories that you hear on Wikipedia 
And musically I'm demonstrating 
When I perform live, feels like I am meditating  Times at the Enterprise when some fella filmed me
'A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi'

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you

You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me

'Cause with the lyrics I'll be aiming it right 
I won't stop till my name's in light 
At Stadium Heights with Damien Rice
On red carpets, now I'm on arabian nights
 Because I'm young and all my brothers gonna give me advice 
Long nighter, short height and I'm gone hyper 

 Never be anything but a singer-songwriter
The games over but now I'm on a new level  Watch how I step on the track without a loop pedal 

 People think that I'm bound to blow up
I've done around about a thousand shows
But I haven't got a house plus I live on the couch 
So you can be the lyrics when I'm singing them out (wow)

From day one, I've been prepared 
With V05 wax for my ginger hair
So now I'm back to the sofa giving a dose of what the future holds
'Cause it's another day plus I'll keep my last name forever keep the genre pretty basic  Gonna be breaking into other people's tunes when I chase it
And replace it with the elephant in the room with a facelift 
Into another rappers shoes using new laces  Selling cds from my rucksack aiming for the papers  Selling cds from my rucksack aiming for majors  Nationwide til' we're just jack, soon as I get the bus back

 Clean cut kid without a razor for the mustache 
I hit back when the pen hurts me
I'm still a choir boy in a French church tee
I'm still the same as a year ago
But more people hear me though  According to the myspace and youtube videos
I'm always doing shows, if I'm not I'm in the studio  Truly broke, never growing up call me Ruffio  Melody music maker  Reading all the papers 
They say I'm up and coming like I'm fucking in an elevator 

'Cause you need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you

You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you
You need me, man, I don't need you, at all
You need me, man, I don't need you
