Why Do I Bother

I need to be strong and walk away

I really don't know why I bother
I say hello and see how you are
The words each day seem to get harder
It's like everything I say is a scar

One minute things are really great
The next minute they're cold as ice
This puts me in a depressed state
All I'm trying to do is be nice

Why do I torture myself every day
It just gets me upset with tears
I suppose it will always be this way
This is how this scenario appears

I need to tuck these feelings away
And remember how you make me feel
There's nothing more that I can say
Feeling like this has no real appeal

I must find the will deep inside
And just try and be strong
I know that I have tried
This is not where I belong

These emotional feelings hurt
This is on-line and I don't really know you
I'm tired of you being curt
It's really too much to go through

I need to say goodbye
And try and work this out
No more tears or sad cries
I really have no more doubts

I suppose our ship has sailed
I thought we could be friends
Each time this just fails
I guess it's really the end

I wish you well
And say adieu
I'm not under any spell
I've got things to attend to
