Why Must I

by 'Til Tuesday

Why must I take it so hard
There's no light in the tunnel
Or dog in the yard
It's my fault for wanting too much
Going deeper than most
Getting harder to touch

I've known days when I'd
Wake up and say,
'The world can get along just fine.'
So why must I take it so hard this time?

Why must I take it so hard
Other people get by
With either bourbon or god
But my world became this one boy
It's the way that I'm made
Do you think I enjoy it?

I've known days when I'd
Wake up and say,
'Just live and let it all go by'
So why must I take it so hard this time?

I've known days when I'd
Wake up and say,
Be careful of the love you find

Be careful of the love you find
Oh, be careful
