lyrics

I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU
I USED TO BE BUT NOW I’M THROUGH
I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU ANYMORE
YOU WERE MY EVERYTHING
NOW EVERYTHING IS GONE
ALL THAT IS LEFT FOR ME IS
ANYTHING I WANT

BUT I’M NOT DONE COMIN’ HOME JUST YET
THERE’S A FEW MORE THINGS BEFORE I FORGET
ONE OF THEM I’LL KNOW IT WHEN I SEE IT
YOU CAN TIE A NOOSE AROUND MY NECK
BUT I’M NOT SWINGIN’ THERE NOT YET
DON’T WAIT FOR ME BEHIND THE CURTAIN

I’M NOT AFRAID OF YOU
YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE A CLUE
AND YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE ME IF I TOLD YA
I SHOULDA SEEN IT COMIN’ BUT I
I NEVER TURNED AROUND
CUS EVERYBODY’S HAPPY WHEN THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN

AND I’M NOT DONE COMIN’ HOME JUST YET
THERE’S A FEW MORE THINGS BEFORE I FORGET
ONE OF THEM I’LL KNOW IT WHEN I SEE IT
YOU CAN TIE A NOOSE AROUND MY NECK
BUT I’M NOT SWINGIN’ THERE NOT YET
DON’T CRY FOR ME I’M NOT LISTENING

I’M CHOPPIN’ WOOD I’M BUILDIN’ A FIRE
I’M MAKIN’ MY WAY OUT ON THE WIRE
WHERE IT’S UNDERSTOOD THERE’S NO LOOKIN’ BACK
I LAY MY PENNY DOWN OUT ON THE TRACKS
I DON’T WANT IT BACK

IF I WAS A BETTING MAN
WITH A SURE THING IN MY HAND
I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU ANYMORE
NOW THAT YOU’VE HAD YOUR FUN
THE BEST OF ME UNDERNEATH YOUR THUMB
BUT EVERY DAY WE DIE INTO ANOTHER ONE

I’M NOT DONE COMIN’ HOME JUST YET
THERE’S A FEW MORE THINGS BEFORE I FORGET
ONE OF THEM I’LL KNOW IT WHEN I SEE IT
YOU CAN TIE A NOOSE AROUND MY NECK
BUT I’M NOT SWINGIN’ THERE NOT YET
I’M NOT UNSURE I AM CERTAIN

I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU
I USED TO BE BUT NOW I’M THROUGH
I DON’T WANT TO BE LIKE YOU ANYMORE
