Lyrics

You've got the good times, you've got the sunshine;
I've got the bad times and rain.
You've got the memories of how my life should be;
Misery's what rules my days.
I've got the blues before I even knew
The blues I had yet to see.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?

So many years ago, I would have told them so
If I was given the choice
Of which roads in life to take, which mistakes to make,
But I wasn't given that voice.
Now I'm locked in this prison that you call my past
From which I will never be freed.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?

They say that life isn't fair,
But all I can say to that is I don't care.
It's so easy when you took from me
Those things I can't get back from you in time.
They say that time heals all wounds;
I'm still licking those that came from you,
And if there is any justice left in this world,
You'd better not leave me from your mind.

Someday I will forgive, simply live and let live;
For now I will never let go
Of how much I'm hurt inside from your foolish pride
And things I should never have known.
I don't know how I'll live on, knowing how much is gone,
The cost of my empathy.
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be me?
Of all the people living in this world,
Why does it have to be?
Why should it have to be?
Why does it have to be me?
