"What For" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
You don't know what's right anymore
You think your love was just a score
Are you too young or afraid to grow up?

You can work this out if you both try
It's hard to cheat but harder to lie
Is this what you want or just a passing thought?

[Chorus]
Maybe you should think about it
Before you go and break her heart
Maybe you need more time to decide
Ask yourself what for

What for (x3)

You painted the picture she wanted to see
You can laugh this one off but it's not funny
She's giving you everything she has

[Chorus]

What for (x3)

Well, you wanted her and you got her
But you're still so careless with your words
If you let her go
She'll move on and find someone
She's never coming back
How can you live with that?

Maybe you should think about it
Before you go and break her heart
Maybe you need more time to decide
So you should think about it some more
Ask yourself what for

What for (x7)

I know it sounds like the same old line
I know I seem like I'm the same old guy
Maybe I don't know how to treat you right
Maybe you'll meet someone tomorrow night
You said I lied since the day we met
But I meant every word I said
So don't regret a single day we spent

    General CommentHmm, not many guys (or girls now a days) are this into a person already in a relationship. Like the person above said, it's sweet because he seems to genuinely care. He's not even saying that the girl should be with him, just that's she's worth a lot and should be treated that way.
