  • I'm telling you I'm okay
    You're telling me there's no way now
    You're words evaporate

    I'm at home I'm watching T.V.
    You think you know what I see now
    Life ain't silver screen

    Cuz I'm way down deep in the dirt
    But oh, baby
    I make the best of the hurt

    Don't wait for me
    My life
    Ain't worth your worries

    Or Stay with me
    My love

    I'm telling you I'm okay
    You're telling me there's no way now
    Don't play me for a fool

    Being alone really ain't that bad
    Do you think I'm really that sad
    Oh no!

    Cuz I'm way down deep in the dirt
    But oh, baby
    I make the best of the hurt

    Don't wait for me
    My life
    Ain't worth your worries

    Or Stay with me
    My love

    Hey! x10

    Oh oh oh oh, wo oh oh
