Why do I bother

Why do I bother talking to you
I know you’ll just ignore me

Why do I bother making our eyes meet
I know you’ll just look away

Why do I bother smiling at you
I know you’ll just frown back

Why do I bother helping you
I know you’ll never return the favor

Why do bother hanging out with you
I know you’ll send me away

Why do I bother staring at you
I know you’ll criticize me

Why do I bother liking you
I know you’ll never return the feeling

Why do I bother fantasizing about you
I know you don’t even realize my existence

* * *
Why do I bother trying to impress you
I know you’ll just laugh

Why do I bother showing off
I know you’ll just hate me

Why do I bother thinking about you
I know the thoughts will turn to dust

Why do I bother talking about you
I know you’ll say I’m wasting my time

Why do I bother picturing your eyes
I know you’ll just close them

Why do I bother trying to befriend you
I know you’ll just dismiss me from your group

Why do I bother liking you
I know you’ll never return the feeling

* * *
Why do I bother dreaming about you
I know it will never happen
