Lyrics

Once I dug a mine in your heart
I thought I'd find something there that would shine
But I couldn't find a vein anywhere
There was something else down in the mine

And I don't need something else to make me lonely
I don't need something else to help me drown
I don't need something else to confuse me
I don't need something else to let me down

Maybe we'll never know love
That isn't trapped by the knees
To not be abandoned at the running of a race
That's something you always concede

And I don't need something else to make me lonely
I don't need something else to help me drown
I don't need something else to confuse me
I don't need something else to let me down

Do you want love or do you want anesthesia
Because when he answered the phone from your bed
And you built your life out of a necessary lie
And you give up something else in your head

And I don't need something else to make me lonely
I don't need something else to help me drown
I don't need something else to confuse me
I don't need something else to let me down

But babe you're something else
Babe, you're something else
I don't need something else
