WHY SHOULD I?
by Michael Jay Kilby
Time and time again
I thought you were faithful,
But time and time again
you were unfaithful.
What did I do that was so bad
for you to destroy what you had?
Did I not give enough affection?
Or did I not pay enough attention?
Why do you make me so sad?
Why should I even care?
You tell me,
All I ever did was just be there-
why can't you see...
That I gave you all a man could give
I gave you happiness, love, attention
Why should I even care...
The fact of the matter is
when you betrayed me it felt like
it was my soul you spent.
I'm not perfect
That I know is true,
But why would you go off with another guy
and act like I don't exist
when I gave my heart to you?
I'm not like those other guys you liked
but I can do things they don't comprehend,
Like when you're down and out-
I can make you happy
And be there for ya' till the end.
I don't know why I'm still with you
maybe it's because I love you so much
God I wish I would die,
I could fly...
But if you don't care,
Then... why should I?
