I wrote an early version of the lyrics to this back sometime around 2001, before I was writing music or even playing guitar with any degree of proficiency.
Does it matter what words I write?
Does it matter what words I sing?
Will anyone read them?
Will anyone ever care?
If I write them, will they read it?
If I sing them, will they listen?
Does it matter what chords I play?
Will they notice if I'm not in tune?
Why should I even bother
If no one stops to listen?
What am I supposed to do
With all these words I write
And the words I did not write
And the words I can't even spell
Will they be remembered?
Or will they just fade away?
Where do the go if they aren't heard?
Left to rust like broken guitars
Does anyone ever listen to what I'm saying?
Does anyone care? Should I just fade away?
All alone with my words, my memory for sale
No one ever seems to listen, maybe I should fade away
