"Martha" as written by and Michael J/kathie Baillie */schlitz Bonagura....
My friend Martha
Works at the bar down the street
And I don't like her like that
I just think she's pretty
Well she been cryin' all night
Talkin' bout a boy

I said, Martha
It's not some kind of contest
That says in the end
If you love someone the most
You get to keep him
She said, maybe it should be

So go on
Run your fingers through me
Like I am barely tangled hair
Pull just a little I swear
I'll be better for the wear
Cup your hands
Like you're holdin' somethin' precious
And I am

But I don't wanna let you go
And I don't know why
Don't know why
And I don't want to let you know
Don't know why
Don't know why
Don't know why

Oh but then again
There's always reason
For letting go
You're just caught in a season
Of nothing to show
That's alright love
It's only life
Wrestling everything you've been
We're sixteen again
Sixteen

And it's a brave new world
For my little generation
I'm just afraid we might die
From a case of low expectations
It ain't so much we don't wanna be happy
It's just everyone's so scared of being sad

And Martha she likes girls now
So we got that in common
She said, if they wanna love me man
I ain't gonna try and stop'em
Careful girl
You know love is a love
That can hurt all the same
It hurts all the same

but I don't wanna let you go
And I don't know why
Don't know why
And I don't want to let you know why
Still don't know why
I don't know why
I do not know why

Ah but then again
There's always reasons for letting go
You're just caught in a season
With nothing to show
That's alright love
It's only life
Wrestling everything you've been
Like you're sixteen again
You're sixteen
You're sixteen again
Sixteen
