WHY BOTHER ? © 2010
If you feel the need to lie, Why waste my time
Why bother ?
You're on my mind, From Dusk till Dawn
Should I even care
Most times I do, At times I don't
If you didn't give a fuck about my feelings, Should I about yours ?
Full of Joy one minute, Tears of Sorrow the next
You will always have a piece of my heart, I wish I could take it back
But why bother ?
So many memories, In such a short amount of time.
You're killing my soul, Torturing my mind
Release me please, I beg of you, set me free
Like a rainbow, You've shown your true colors
Yeah the head was good, Your companionship was great
But Is that enough to make me wanna stay
Why bother ?
At one point, My connection to you was burning so strong,
Now it's like the waves of an ocean have come and doused our flames
My candle no longer burns for you, The way it once did
You can't be my lover, my homie, You could possibly be my friend
But why even bother ?
I kept it real from day one, Did You ?
If I'd known then, My heart wouldn't have went through
All the pain, At this present moment I feel
But you knew the deal
I should have listened to that voice, Before I made the choices I made
If I could rewind time, I most definitely would...
Why Bother ?
Maybe I was a fool to endure you for so long
You've got all the time in the world
To think about how you fucked things up
They say people deserve second chances
Do I think so ?...I sincerely do
But, This time, For you
Please give me one reason
Why should I even Bother ?
(Dedicated to You...You know who you are !! )
