I don't deserve anything I get
Things just come easy to me
Like the sun in the morning on a blanket of clouds
And other things that you don't see

And I don't deserve my family
I am the youngest and they all love me
And I don't feel pain
But I don't feel free sometimes

And I will shatter because I don't bounce
Feel weight on my shoulder
From something that weighs just an ounce
Like life since the moment that we met
But I don't deserve anything I get

I don't deserve anything I get
I am self-centered and weak
And I don't feel your pain or your emptiness
Or feel sorry for you when you bleed

And I don't deserve my body
It may not be perfect but it works for me
And I can walk and I can see the sky

But I will shatter because I don't bend
And all that I know is that you are my friend
And I love you more than any record ever set
But I don't deserve anything I get

Well I don't deserve anything I get
People just take care of me
And I'll never be sorry for the way I see you
Or just sorry for the way you see me

Because I will shatter and I will break
And I'm usually the first one to make a mistake
Oh but God only gives us as much as we can take I bet
But I don't deserve anything I get
And I don't deserve anything I get
