My Give a Damn’s Busted

by Jo Dee Messina

Well you filled up my head,
With so many lies.
Twisted my heart
Til something snapped inside.
I’d like to give it one more try
but my give a damn’s busted.

You can crawl back home
say you were wrong,
stand out in the yard
cry all night long.
Well go ahead and water the lawn.
My give a damn’s busted.

(chorus)

I really wanna care,
I wanna feel somethin’
Let me dig a little deeper…
Nope…
Sorry…
Nothin’

(2nd verse)

You can say you’ve got issues.
You can say you’re a victim.
It’s all your parents fault,
After all you didn’t pick em
Well maybe Oprah’s got time to listen.
My give a damn’s busted.

(*Well let me get this straight now)
Your therapist said
It was all just a phase
A product of the prozac
And your co-dependent ways
So uhh … who’s your enabler these days
My give a damn’s busted.

(chorus)

I really wanna care,
I wanna feel somethin’
Let me dig a little deeper…
Eeh-Eeh

(3rd verse)
(*Oh you’re tellin’ me)
It’s a desperate situation,
No tellin’ what you’ll do.
If I don’t forgive you,
You say your life is through.
Well honey… give me somethin’ I can use.
(My give a damn’s busted.)
(*Ahh you knew I was gonna say that, didn’t ya.)
