Lyrics: Things you said to me sentimentally
Are always on my mind
Seems you harboured me but you set me free
Long before you gave me time to escape
The next time I'll be on my way
Cuz this time it's true
I'm turning my back on you

Don't ya say it - don't say you need me
If you don't mean it - don't even try
Don't ya say it - don't say you want me
If you don't mean it - don't say goodbye

You threw love at me indispensably
But you never could give it away
And it seems to me that should never be
That's why I'll never stay with you
You can't hold me down cuz it's my life too
So this time it's true
I'm turning my back on you

Don't ya say it - don't say you need me
If you don't mean it - don't even try
Don't ya say it - don't say you want me
If you don't mean it - don't say goodbye
