Lyrics

I Feel Bad
Words and Music: Regan L. Barger
Barger Publishing {ASCAP} 2002

I Feel Bad and I don?t know why
I Feel Bad and I don?t know why.

I met a Texas girl back in ?91
We were getting high and having fun
I almost died and I was done.
You clean up good her momma said
And I got a job to pay the rent
And we got married and it was heaven sent.

But late at night lying in my bed
No relief from the sense of dread
The void I felt I can?t describe.

I Feel Bad and I don?t know why
I wanna cry
I Feel Bad and I don?t know why.
God is looking down on me and I wanna hide.

Like the fairytales that my grandma read
We bought a house and had a kid
A little girl and my life was rich.
But the chemicals had become my friend
I had dug a tunnel that had no end
It was all okay so I?d pretend.

I?d take a bath so I?d be clean
But happiness it seemed obscene
It only came when I got high.

I Feel Bad and I don?t know why
All the blue across the sky and it makes me cry.
I Feel Bad and I don?t know why.
God is looking down on me and I wanna die.
I wanna die

A ghost that floated through their lives
Piling up a stack of lies
Maybe there?s time to make me right.

I Feel Bad and I don?t know why
The sun is shining down on me and I wanna cry.
I Feel Bad and I don?t know why.
God is looking down on me and why do I lie?
Why do I lie?
Everything I?ve ever done is mine.
No more lies.
