Why Bother? Maybe I should just give up on ever falling in love. Cuz it seems like it comes from hell and not the heavens above Every time I hear thosse 3 words it cuts me like a knife Then I sit and wonder if I'll be scarred like that for life I fall in love, then I get hurt and all I can do is cry And then I have to sit and think, "Why do I even try?" But then I remember the way it feels to have someone be all mine To love and be loves is such a good feeling it has me on cloud 9 It makes me sick to think of this cycle: pure bliss straight down to pain Then I think about my heart and how its being caused such strain So I ask myself, "Why bother with love? Soon it will cause your heart to stop it's beat?" But of course, I know the answer, It makes me feel so complete. The funny thing is you beg and plead to get the love you want so bad But then after it hurts you, all you want to do is give it back It hurts so bad you want all your feelings to just go away All the while knowing that the love is there to stay You try and try to get rid of the feeling but it sticks like white on rice But I know you'd better be careful before the pain turns your heart to ice I want to say please don't give away your heart, please don't take that fall. But then I remember, it's better to have loved and lost then to have never loved at all.
