I don't need you to kiss me,
I don't need your tearful eyes,
I don't need you to stroke my hair,
or sing me lullabies.
I don't need you to die for me,
or give me a golden ring,
or swear your faithfulness to me,
you know the kind of thing.
I just want you to hold me,
to protect me from my sorrow,
just keep me warm, keep me from harm,
until I die tomorrow.
