Answer me
Why won't you answer me?
I can't recall the day that I last heard from you
Well you don't get a town like this for nothing
So here's what you've got to do
You work your way to the top of the world
Then you break your life in two

Well what's the use in complaining
When you've got what you don't need
Anyone would think you were hard done to
What do you want me to believe

What the hell is happening
I can't think of everything
I don't know what day it is
Or who I'm talking to

But I know that I'm ok
'Cause you're here with me today
I haven't got a single problem
Now that I'm with you

So what's the use in complaining
When you've got everything you need
Anyone would think you were hard done to
What do you want me to believe

    General Comment..I am stunned that noone has yet commented on this song. Firstly it is one of the most catchy tunes ever written (it has some similarity to the earlier Bryan Adams song "One night love affair").
    I have always assumed the lyrics is about someone who has worked hard to become sucessful (sacrifing their personal relationship to some degree) and their partner is complaining... could of course be completely wrong but its the tune that makes it memorable.
