why lyrics – josh ritter

why

why can’t you try to be happy?
why must you always be sad?
why spend your only life waitin’
to have what you know you can have?

why spend your only life hopin’?
what a torture to be always blue, darlin’.
why spend your only life waiting
to do what you know you can do?

what’s the worst thing that could possibly happen to you?

why spend your only life hopin’?
what a torture to be always blue, darlin’.
why spend your only life waitin’
to do what you know you can do?
why spend your only life waitin’
to do what you know you can do?
