I'd Rather Had A Cheeseburger

Sometimes life gives you cheeseburgers, and sometimes it gives you a salad. Nobody ever said life was fair.
Townes Van Zandt ~ Waitin' For The Day

I no longer can recall
All the times you made me crawl
All the times you made me hang my head and cry
But still the teardrops fall
And Lord, what's worst of all
I just ain't got the nerve to say goodbye

I'm waiting for the day
When I can hide my love away
And stand up like a man, so tall and free
Then you'll be the one to say
Oh darlin' can't you stay
I don't know what I'd do if you should leave me

Oh girl, I don't know why
You always have to try
To hurt me to make me feel ashamed
Oh, but some day by and by
You're gonna be the one to cry
And walk the floor and sadly call my name


But it looks like until then
I'll throw pride to the wind
And try to make believe that I don't know
That a day is coming when
You won't do me wrong again
And I will be the one to turn and go
