"I Don't Squirm"

It was cold at night and still hot in bed
I was too tired to sleep, hungry to be fed
I was lugging life solely with my head
As I bled, I bled, I bled, I bled
I crashed my car, run off by my pride
I hit the ground and busted open wide
Not until I was dying did I see something inside
Still alive, alive, alive

I did not squirm
But you knew that I hurt, babe
And I did not learn
But you knew that I yearned, babe

I lived my life by my own march of might
Going on what I always thought was right
Never sought no help to fight my fight
Said, "I'm alright, alright, alright, alright"
But yeah, I'll say I had a broken heart
But not some love lost to a scar
I just needed that missing part
To start, to start, to start

I did not squirm
But you knew that I hurt, babe
And I did not learn
But you knew that I yearned, babe


Then you came by the bloodied wrecked roadside
You knelt in front of my fading eyes
You pumped my heart like I could not have tried
I cried, for your eyes, no pride, I tried
To stand up straight and hide away my pain
But I let it go there in your arms in the rain
I looked in your face and didn't have to explain
Or remain, the same, the same

Now I don't squirm
'Cause I no longer hurt, babe
And now I learn
About for what I yearn, babe
