“Why Should I Bother?”

(Intro)


(Verse 1)

Well this friend that I used to know, turned his back and walked away. You see? Just a little dispute changed his ways, now a good friend won’t even look at me. I tried and tried to keep the peace but he was just another dog, following the flow of the stream.

(Chorus)

Why should I bother to change who I am?
Why should I keep a friend who will change for fame and leave me in the dirt?
Why should I bother?

(music interlude, slide guitar)

(Verse 2)

It started one day as a petty little fight on the school yard ground, I got the best of him and he didn’t make a sound. He was shamed and afraid that his fake friends would see that I had escaped, free!

(Chorus)

Why should I bother to change who I am?
Why should I keep a friend who will change for fame and leave me in the dirt?
Why should I bother?
(Bridge)

Now you see? Just another friend will like to say that that I can’t grasp the land. But if you were you and not that dog, you would understand. Don’t let go and fall in and take me for who I am.

(Chorus)

Why should I bother to change who I am?
Why should I keep a friend who will change for fame and leave me in the dirt?
Why should I bother?

(short solo, slide guitar)
