“Annie” – by Kent Mayhew (1999)

New start, new dreams
Moved to the city right in the Spring
New car, found some new bars
Some new friends, looking like a star
But Annie don’t need you anymore

Old flames, burn stains
Smolder in the songs that
Pull your heart strings
But those treasures locked in
Your memory box
Reverse hearts, but not clocks
And Annie don’t need you anymore

Be thankful of what you’ve got
If all that’s left is what you lost
See, that’s the beauty of how a lesson’s taught
It’s never cheap but not forgot
Like Annie don’t need you anymore

No Annie don’t need you anymore
Not Annie don’t need you anymore
No, not Annie don’t need you anymore
– No I don’t
