It Ain't Easy Being Me

Anderson, John (USA)
There ought to be a town somewhere named for how I feel
Yeah I could be the mayor down there and say, "Welcome to Sorryville"
Wouldn't be on the map nowhere you might say it don't exist
But if you make enough wrong turns, it'd be hard to miss

There oughta be a bridge somewhere they could dedicate to me
I'd probably show up at the ceremony with a can of gasoline
Walk on over to the other side and there I'd light a match
Then sit and stare through the smoke and flames wonderin' how I'm gonna get back

Why I do the things I do?
Was I born this way or am I a self made fool
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love and I break your heart
And I know the words that will bring you back
But I don't say nothing as I watch you pack
I've had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy being me

There oughta be a side show act for freaks like me
I could be the star of the show with my name on the marquee
In a room with a big red button that says, "Danger, do not touch"
In twice a day I'd mash it down and you can watch me self destruct

Why I do the things I do?
Was I born this way or am I a self made fool
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love and I break your heart
And I know the words that will bring you back
But I don't say nothing as I watch you pack
I've had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy being me

It ain't easy being me
It ain't easy being me
