Why is it so hard???

lyrics

I need a shower
I need a shave
I need a book to teach me how to behave
'Cause everybody tells me I should behave a certain way

I need a compass
I need a map
I need to learn another way to react
Because nobody ever actually acts the way they say they will

Why is it so hard dealing with people?
Why is it so hard talking to you?
Can somebody tell me what you really want me to do for you?

I want a Wrangler
I want a house
I want another way of figuring out if there's a way of really figuring out the inner workings of your minds

I want a backyard that I can mow
I want to find a way of letting you know
And if there's a better way of letting you know then just please tell me and I'll try

Why is it so hard dealing with people?
Why is it so hard talking to you?
Can somebody tell me what you really want me to do for you?
Why is it so hard to make you happy?
Why is it so hard working with you?
And all my best friends say they have this problem too
Well how 'bout you?

I need to tour
I need to skate
I need to stop trying hard to relate
Because it shouldn't be so hard to relate if you are truthful such as I

And if you had a conscience
If you felt shame
You'd be okay with sharing some of the blame
I'm sick and tired of accepting the blame when I know in my heart I'm right

Why is it so hard dealing with people?
Why is it so hard talking to you?
Can somebody tell me what you really want me to do for you?
Why is it so hard to make you happy?
Why is it so hard working with you?
And my best friends say they have this problem too
Well how 'bout you?

Mail me a postcard
Write me a note
Just remember all the songs that I wrote
