Where would I be if it weren't for you
How could I grieve then hurt like I do
Oh where would it be if it were not here
Everything I need to live in fear

Oh would there be someone who's just waiting there
Who would then say it's because I care
This will hurt me more than you
Oh now look what you made me do

And why do you have to just push me so far
Besides who do you think you are
Go ahead but you'll never leave
Oh where would you be
If it weren't for me

No time to waste
I must save my strength
Keep my head on straight
Just long enough to think

Oh where would I be if it weren't for you
I guess I'd have nothing so how could I lose
So from you I'll take nothing, no nothing at all
With nothing to stop me, it's right down the hall

I'll reach for the knob then I'll walk through the door
And I will feel nothing for you anymore
And if you see someone that you never knew
That's where I'd be if it weren't for you

No time to waste
I must save my strength
Keep my head on straight
Just long enough to think
Roll out my plan
I never looked back I just ran
