It doesn't pay to try all the smart boys know why
It doesn't mean I didn't try, I just never know why
Feel so cold and all alone, baby you're not at home
And when I'm home, big deal I'm still alone

Fee; so restless I am, beat my head against a pole
Try to knock some sense, down in my bone
And even though they don't show, the scars aren't so old
And when they go, they let you know

You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory

Don't try, don't try

You're just a bastard kid, and you got no name
'Cause you're living with me, we're one in the same
And even though they don't show the scars aren't so old
And when they go, they let you know

You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory

Don't try, don't try
