Wonder Why I am

By    

I've been lost for so long chasing my dream,
yet I feel I haven't gotten too far
Broken my body, broken my bank
nothing to show but the miles on my car
The time that I spend, the love that I waste,
is it worth this life that I yearn?
But I keep on going cause I can't help but think,
she's round the next corner I turn

Like a collarless dog, no one will claim
I've got nothing not even someone to blame
I've been killing myself, but who'll give a damn?
There's nothing here and I wonder why I am

After each wrong turn, I look back and reflect,
trying to dig my way out of the dirt
But what can I do, seems whatever I choose,
it still won't lead me to her
How long do I last, how far do I go?
Not sure if it's me who decides
Could be years or it could be tomorrow,
but I'll chase her until I die
Like a collarless dog, no one will claim
I've got nothing not even someone to blame
I've been killing myself, but who'll give a damn?
There's nothing here and I wonder why I am
