Why Me??

Physical pain I’ve learned to take

It’s not the same when there’s no sense to make

Wasn’t the way I dreamed it out

Out of the blue something to scream about

 

Why? Why me??

Of all the ways it could be

We plan, God laughs

But people stab in the back

Or they just attack

 

Of all the ways for this to go

And so they blame me for this blow

I guess the world will never get to know

They don’t believe me that I didn’t know

The grace I would have shown the world

No place here on skates when you’re not a perfect girl

I won’t recover, send another and

What will become of me now? Tell me!

 

Why? Why me??

Of all the ways this could be

We plan, God laughs

But people stab in the back

Tell me how to find a way to push beyond the pain

Push all the lies away

Tell me how to find a way to rise above the fray

 

Why? Why me?? Wahoo oh oh woah now

Why? Why me?? Wahoo oh oh 

 

Tell me how to find a way forge another 

Push the lies a . . . 

Maybe the world will never know

When will the world leave me alone so I can concentrate

All the grace and all the praise erased and wasted laid up braced up now

But wait – how could they blame me for this, shame me for this 

Tell me something

Why’d they have to take my chance away?

Find a way to fight another day
