"Whatever" as written by and Chris/mayo Lindsey....
I make my way by inches and degrees
That make up a forest of too many trees
Seems like every time I try
There's something there to stop me

I only back down when there's something to lose
One foot can sometimes be better than two
And if I jump across the fence
There's nothing there to catch me


I try to tell you what I'm thinking
But it flies back in my face
Words come out different
Meanings are shifted
And my intentions take new shapes

Turning me backwards
Lifting me upwards
Drop me in my place

Wherever that is
Whatever that means
Whatever difference it makes

Could it be that you don't understand me?
I doubt myself sometimes, never, always
And I don't feel like holding out
Cause I'm too tired for this time

I make resolutions, I won't back down
Then comes a rainstorm, and I hit the ground
But the sun's shining right now
Take me away awhile

Wherever that is (Turning me backward, lifting me upward)
Whatever that means (Turning me backward, lifting me upward)
Whatever difference it makes.
