Song: I Don't Need You

FAWM 2022

Album: FAWM 2022
Track: #18

I don't know whether I'm comfortable accepting it as the new norm, but the process has become very fluid now. Today, again, I sat down, played around with some chords, songs, etc. then strummed a chord progression (D, Gm, to begin with) and spit out some words, and this song kind of came to life.

It has an _immense_ Chris Stapleton vibe (who I really don't listen to apart from 2nd hand in stores, other peoples' cars, etc.), so for all I know there is a song exactly like this out there, but I think some of these lyrics are my cleverest yet this FAWM. (I like the belly/barely part, in particular).

Anyway, here's a bluesy love song. I hope you like it!

I don't need you
But you're all I want
Although I seem to
Be all nonchalant

My thoughts never ready
My palms always sweaty around you
Butterflies in my belly
Can barely hold myself steady now to

Say what I mean
Your eyes they beam
Something I can't look enough into

I don't need you
But you're all I want
Although I seem to
Be all nonchalant

(musical interlude)

I don't need you
But you're all I want
Although I seem to
Be all nonchalant

My thoughts never ready
My palms always sweaty around you
Butterflies in my belly
Can barely hold myself steady now to

Say what I mean
Your eyes they beam
Something I can't look enough into

I don't need you
But you're all I want
Although I seem to
Be all nonchalant

I don't need you
But you're all I want
Although I seem to
Be all nonchalant
