I Couldn’t Sleep


I was trying to take a nap but this strange tune came to my mind and words I had never spoken, so I got up and wrote the words to a song called, Why did you treat me so bad?

Why did you treat me so bad

I remember sitting in the car all alone

Watching my family on the bench eating their cones

Brushing tears as they rolled down my cheeks

I just wanted to escape and run from my defeat

Chorus;

Why did you treat me so bad?

What did you want that you thought that I had?

I saw what perhaps was pain in your eyes

Maybe, you and me; we just wanted to die

I remember coming home from school on e cloudy day

A crowd of people all standing in my way.

They wouldn’t let me walk through my very own front door

Whispers of, “We’re never going to see her ever anymore

Chorus;

Why did you treat me so bad?

What did you want that you thought that I had?

I saw what perhaps was pain in your eyes

Maybe, you and me; we just wanted to die

Daddy packed his suitcase that very night.

Placed the gun in my lap and said to sit tight

I saw him quietly slip out the back door

All my dreams died and crumbled to the floor

Chorus;

Why did you treat me so bad?

What did you want that you thought that I had?

I saw what was perhaps pain in your eyes.

Maybe, you and me; we just wanted to die.e cloudy day.
