Songwriting: I'm Not Funny Anymore

 

I'm Not Funny Anymore

VERSE 1

Why must I hurt, so you feel good?

Why can't we behave like we should?

All this tension, and keeping score

Don't think it's working anymore

 

VERSE 2

In the beginning, we teased 'n played

Saw me naked but said she'd stay

Then I topped her, 'n called her a whore

Don't think I'm funny anymore

 

CHORUS 1

When I fall down, you pick me up

You stay strong, and build me up

Time for some laughter, not a war, but

I'm not funny

I'm not funny

I'm not funny anymore

 

VERSE 3

From behind me, and under her breath

She'd plan and plot to stage my death

Should I be worried, get out the door?

Don't think she's funny anymore

 

CHORUS 2

When I fall down, you pick me up

You stay strong, and build me up

Time for some laughter, not a war, but

I'm not funny

I'm not funny

I'm not funny anymore

 

BREAK

 

CHORUS 3

When I fall down, you pick me up

You stay strong, and build me up

Time for some laughter, not a war, but

I'm not funny

I'm not funny

I'm not funny anymore

 

VERSE 4

Why must I hurt, so you feel good?

Why can't we behave like we should?

All this tension, and keeping score

Don't think I’m funny anymore

 

CHORUS 4

When I fall down, you pick me up

You stay strong, and build me up

Time for some laughter, not a war, but

I'm not funny

I'm not funny

I'm not funny anymore
