"I Don't Need You" (possibly alternately titled "I Am Gay"[1]) is a song by Rivers Cuomo.

Appearances

Overview

Catalog O' Riffs entry #404 was, apparently, written around 2002 (listed in the Catalog as "I am gay"[1]). At some point thereafter, the song was named "I Don't Need You." The song was demoed by Cuomo at S.I.R. Studios in early 2004 during preproduction on Make Believe, but did not make the cut. Two recordings of the song were released to fans in 2020 as part of the demo compilations Alone VIII: The Maladroit Years and Alone IX: The Make Believe Years.

Lyrics

So lonely on my own
I call you but you're not home

It's been so many nights
Since I had you right by my side
And I don't think I could take you back
Even if you change your mind

I don't need you anymore
I'm stronger now
So back out of my door
You made your bed
So lie in it
I can't admit

You hurt me awful bad
I've never been so sad

And now you think you can
Come right back where you used to be
I have a news report for you
So listen up to me

I don't need you anymore
I'm stronger now
So back out of my door
You made your bed
So lie in it
I can't admit

Oh, there was a time
When I was just trying to be with you
And you left me out on my own
...

Oh, so low
Alone, so low
Alone, so low
So low, alone

I don't need you anymore
I'm stronger now
So back out of my door
You made your bed
So lie in it
I can't admit you

Oh, well there was a time
When I was just trying to be with you
And you left me out on my own
...
