From the recording Up Close

Lyrics

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

I’m a little bit thinner
Than yesterday
My hair’s a bit greyer
Than it used to be
I’m a little bit sadder
In all honesty
But a little bit wiser
To some degree

Why me

I feel so dirty
With this thing in me
I feel the burning
Of activity
My life’s remaining
But what’s the cost
There’s nothing gained
When all is lost

Ooh Why me

I’m a little bit scared mama
Close your eyes and pray for me
It’s gonna be hard
I’m a little bit scared mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard
I got it real bad mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard
I’m a little bit scared mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ain’t afraid of dying
But gracefully
Don’t want no pain
Through my agony
I’ll be just fine
If I go to sleep
Just kiss my head
And pray for me

Ooh why me

I’m a little bit scared mama
Close your eyes and pray for me
It’s gonna be hard
I’m a little bit scared mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard
I got it real bad mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard
I’m a little bit scared mama
Don’t think I’ll make it this time
It’s gonna be hard
It’s gonna be hard
It’s gonna be hard

Ooh why me
