Why Do You Bother ?

(words and music Marc Harry)

 

 

Why do You bother with me when You know Iíll be no good ?

Why do You bother with me - I thought You understood ?

I told You long ago just to leave me with my song.

I told You long ago - I thought You knew that all along...

 

Lonely traveller on the highway of life

Donít interrupt me - Iím doing fine

Iím just a traveller on the highway of life

Donít let me get You down but...

Iím not coming around.

 

Why donít You leave me alone - Iíve got too much to do ?

Why donít You leave me alone, I donít want to listen to You ?

Iím happy where I am, doing anything I like,

I canít communicate - my prayer-lifeís gone on strike !

 

Lonely traveller on the highway of life

Donít interrupt me - Iím doing fine

Iím just a traveller on the highway of life

Donít let me get You down but...

Iím not coming around.

 

Iíve lost my peace of mind...

Iím feeling so unkind...

Donít know which way to go...

I give up - I want to know.

 

Iím glad you bothered with me and now weíll be OK,

Youíll walk beside of me each step of the way.

I told You long ago just to leave me with my song

But You knew that Iíd never last - and You knew it all along !

 

Lonely traveller on the highway of life

Your Spiritís with me - Iím doing fine

Iím NOT just a traveller on the highway of life

And I know when I lay down that - Iíll be wearing a crown.
