Don’t you try to hold my hand
Don’t you try to help me up
Don’t you tell me that it’s time to stand
‘Cause I’ll do that soon enough

Don’t you smile and say you’re on my side
When you’re the reason that I fell
Don’t you say you know the tears I’ve cried
When you’ve been dragging me through hell

Am I ever gonna be okay?
Does the world really work this way?
If it’s always gonna end like this
I don’t want to be part of it.
Don’t say it’s time I come around
You know everything is coming down
Tell me that it’s over now
But don’t tell me that it’s time I come around

Don’t you frown and say you’re sorry
For all of my mistakes
When you don’t have to hurt me
When you know there’s other ways


And all the years that I’ve put in
They all count for nothing
All the things I’ve done for you
Ought to count for something
You think that you own me now
You think I live for you
You think you can control me now
But baby that’s not true
