A House – Why Me lyrics

Why me?
Why me?

This is a cruel and ruthless world
This is our world
This is everyone for themselves where bigger dogs eat smaller dogs over
Lunch
Where there's always someone younger, cheaper and better than you
It's a game
In order to survive you must play
To succeed you must cheat
If you do you do not have the right to feel hard done by
If you don't you'll spend the rest of your life wondering why
Why me?

Why me indeed...
I ordered everything that my eyes could see
But you don't see the pitfalls when you're blinded by greed
I ordered things I could never afford
But I got much more than I bargained for

If I hadn't gone too far
If I didn't want to much
If I hadn't pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

If I hadn't gone too far
If I didn't want to much
If I hadn't pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

Sometimes our expectations are far too high
And we lead ourselves to believe that that love should be indestructible
When in fact love is the one thing that can completely destroy us
We think that we deserve to get more out than were willing to put in
We demand honesty, openness and loyalty
Which is more than we can bear live up to
So when love falls apart we feel that we're the only person in the world
This have ever happened to
Why me?
Why me indeed?

I took a chance and died in your arms
When you took me in and you smothered me with your charms
I bit off more than I could possibly chew
And I'd eaten my fill and was devoured by you

Why me indeed...
I ordered everything that my eyes could see
But you don't see the pitfalls when you're blinded by greed
I ordered things I could never afford
But I got much more than I bargained for

If I hadn't gone too far
If I didn't want to much
If I hadn't pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

If I hadn't gone too far
If I didn't want to much
If I hadn't pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

We cannot bear to admit defeat
We cannot take the pain
We are prepared to take the risks
And bask in the glory of our own success
We are not prepared to wallow in the depths of our inadequacies
So we look for someone else to blame
Why me indeed...

I took a chance and died in your arms
When you took me in and you smothered me with your charms
I bit off more than I could possibly chew
When I'd eaten my fill, I was devoured by you

Why me indeed...
I ordered everything that my eyes could see
But you don't see the pitfalls when you're blinded by greed
I ordered things I could never afford
But I got much more than I bargained for

If I hadn't gone too far
If I didn't want to much
If I hadn't pushed too hard
Things could have been different for me

Things should have been different for me
