lyrics

Nothin’ To Defend/Little Budder


Well I been tryin’ hard to figure out
What went wrong with me
You know, at twenty two I never thought about Anything I couldn’t see

Cigarettes and beer and my friends call Wonderin’ just how far I’d fall
But I’m not much for talkin’ on the phone
It’s easier to be alone

Well, I try (ahhh)

You know I try (ooh)

But I don’t have much left to spend

But I don’t know why, oh, I don’t know why

Feel like I’ve got nothin’ to defend


Every now and then I look back and laugh
And wonder where you are
You know I hung on to that photograph
Of you in your brother’s car

But I don’t laugh for long until it turns
And the mood pulls me in
I been knocked around and bruised and burned
Then I do it all over again

Well, I try (ahhh)
You know I try (ooh)
But I don’t have much left to spend
But I don’t know why, oh, I don’t know why
Feel like I’ve got nothin’ to defend

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah……


Well I been tryin’ hard to figure out (ahhh)
You know I try (ooh)
But I don’t have much left to spend
But I don’t know why, oh, I don’t know why
Feel like I’ve got nothin’ to defend

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah…..
