  • I don't need a parachute
    You don't need to ask if I'm okay
    I can look after myself
    We've been walking for hours now
    My feet are starting to itch
    Blisters crack all over my skin
    And my shoes don't even fit

    I'm so sorry for the pain
    Sorry for the aches
    Sorry for the moods I'm swinging
    But I don't need your hand
    I don't need your heart
    I don't need a parachute

    I have tried to carry you
    As far as I could go but I'm not strong
    Enough to do this on my own
    I pack my bags and leave this town
    Cause I'm not welcome back here any more
    Upon these shores

    I'm so sorry for the pain
    Sorry for the aches
    Sorry for the moods I'm swinging
    But I don't need your hand
    I don't need your heart
    I don't need a parachute

    I'm so sorry for the greed
    Sorry for the hate
    Sorry for the mess I left you
    But I don't want it back
    I don't need it back
    I don't need a parachute

    Well may the love, that we share, come alive tonight
    Yeah may the love, that we share, come alive tonight

    I'm so sorry for the pain
    Sorry for the aches
    Sorry for the moods I'm swinging
    But I don't need your hand
    I don't need your heart
    I don't need a parachute

    I'm so sorry for the greed
    Sorry for the hate
    Sorry for the mess I left you
    But I don't want it back
    I don't need it back
    I don't need a parachute Writer/s: CHARLES SIMPSON, DANTON SUPPLE
