"Why Bother" as written by and Allison Weiss....
I'm not a mystery
Everything I think is written down
Keeping me from keeping you around
I can't keep my feet on the ground

And there's a million ways
That I could mess it up, I always do
By making plans and making them too soon
I can't make much sense out of you

But why bother
Cause I'd rather call it off
Than wait for it to work
And why bother
Cause I bet you're better off
With some other hopeless jerk
And I like you, but what can I do
There's too much space to make you stay

And there's a price to pay
For doing what I do, but I can't stop
I open up my heart like it's my job
I tell myself it's over, but it's not

I've got a running list
Of all the times I tried to break my fall
And all the times I wished that you would call
And all the times I wished for you at all

But why bother
Cause I'd rather call it off
Than wait for it to work
And why bother
Cause I bet you're better off
With some other hopeless jerk
And I like you, but what can I do
There's too much space to make you stay

I'm not a mystery
Everything I think is written down
Yeah, everything I think is written down
Keeping me from keeping you around

But why bother
Cause I'd rather call it off
Than wait for it to work
And why bother
Cause I bet you're better off
With some other hopeless jerk
And I like you, but what can I do
There's too much space to make you stay
There's too much space to make you stay
