LyricsEdit

Didn't she say, didn't she say, didn't she say
I don't love you anymore, I don't need you anymore
I can't call you anymore, I don't feel you anymore
I got my own cross to bear and I can take it anywhere
And if I choose to take it elsewhere then I will

Now everyone of us got something to say
And everyone of us got someone to pay
Everyone of us at the end of the day says what have I done

Now everyone of us got something to see
And everyone of us got somewhere to be
Everyone of us got something to bleed when we're on our own

But didn't she say, didn't she say, didn't she say
I don't love you anymore, I can't feel you anymore
I can't call you anymore, I don't love you anymore
I got my own cross to bear, I can take it anywhere
And if I choose to take it elsewhere then I will

Now everyone of us got something to find
Over where the train hits the end of the line
Everyone of us got something to cry about all night long
But anyone can see there's a reason to ride
And anyone can see there's a reason to fly
Anyone can see there's a reason to try if you're on your own

But didn't she say, didn't she say, didn't she say
I don't love you anymore, I don't need you anymore
I can't call you anymore, I don't feel you anymore
I got my own cross to bear and I can take it anywhere
And if I choose to take it elsewhere then I will

Now I can take it to the sea
And I can take it away
I can take it to the hills
And I can take it away
I can keep it to myself, when no one else can tell
And live my life in secret misery

But didn't she say, didn't she say, didn't she say
I don't love you anymore, I don't need you anymore
I can't call you anymore, I don't feel you anymore
I got my own cross to bear, I can take it anywhere
And if I choose to take it elsewhere then I will
If I choose to take it elsewhere then I will
If I choose to take it elsewhere then I will
