It doesn't pay to try all the smart boys know why
It doesn't mean I didn't try I'll just never know why
And even when i'm home Big deal im still alone
You see how restless i am, I beat my head against a pole
Just trying to knock some sense down in these bones
And even though they don't show the scars are so old
And even when they go they'll still let you know


You can't put your arms around a memory (3 times)
Don't try, don't try, don't try

You're just a messed up kid, and you got no need
Because you're living with him, we're one in the same
And even though they never show, the scars they are so
And when they go, they're gonna let you know
