I don’t need to tell you why I take the steps I take
I know I’m responsible for every move I make
And I don’t need to explain who I really am to you
Fact is you know much less about me than you think you do…

And I don’t need to tell you why my heart does what it does
Can’t it be enough for you that I am so in love?
And I don’t need to explain why I feel the way I feel
I can just assure you that its every bit as real…

I know I don’t need to but I might if you’d just ask me to my face
But instead you choose to judge me from a far off place
So I don’t need to tell you…

I don’t need to tell you why I do the things I do
Why do you care when they’ve got nothing to do with you?
And I don’t need to explain why I am the way I am
You’ll just have to trust I’m always doing the best I can…
