lyrics

Why Me
Words and music by Shannon Rose

The tap keeps on dripping and it’s getting later
The floor keeps on shaking with each passing freighter
And I’ve been trying to drown out the noise
But I’d have to sing at the top of my voice

Why me
I didn’t do anything
I’m innocent
And I have always believed

They said if I reached and gathered my mettle
I could leap with a bound from this ghetto
And the wings of the angels would sound
Though I thought there was noone around
So I’ll keep laying my prayers on the table
And I’ll keep trusting I’m equal and able
And I’ll keep waiting to see the advances
But I don’t seem to get many chances

Why me
I didn’t do anything
I’m innocent
And I was led to believe
That if you’re good
Then good things would come
Well I ain’t been that bad
Am I just not good enough

And I will kneel till I’m raw
And I will sing till I’m hoarse
And I will speak with the Lord
About lifting my cross

And I will kneel till I’m raw
And I will sing till I’m hoarse
And I’ll cry out to the Lord
How ‘bout liftin’ my cross

Why me
I didn’t do anything
I’m innocent
And I was led to believe
Why me, why me, why me
I didn’t do anything
I’m innocent
And I have always believed
