Song Description

Song is using relationship to question "what life's all about". Guy is describing a typical existence and all life throws up at him and his partner and he also observes other people as he questions "dos it really matter anyway.

Story Behind the Song

A lyric written when i was feeling down. My first thoughts were to change it but i was very happy with the combination of lyric and melody when it was finished. I feel that it has a life in a musical or perhaps a film

Lyrics

DON?T IT MAKE YOU WONDER


Look at me, I can?t find the time to spend tomorrow
Yet i?m standing still
Look at me, all the years I?ve hustled and I?ve borrowed
Just to pay the bills

Chorus
Don?t it make you wonder what it?s all about
What will you have achieved before your tide goes out
Don?t it make you wonder why you try at all
When it doesn?t really matter anyway

Look at you, living day to day on dreams and maybe?s
Trying not to cry
Look at you, holding on to love that drives you crazy
Times I don?t know why

Chorus
Don?t it make you wonder what it?s all about
What will you have achieved before your tide goes out
Don?t it make you wonder why you try at all
When it doesn?t really matter anyway

Look around, count the lonely souls behind the laughter
Everyone pretends
Look at us, are we even sure of what we?re after
Or where the looking ends

Chorus
Don?t it make you wonder what it?s all about
What will you have achieved before your tide goes out
Don?t it make you wonder why you try at all
When it doesn?t really matter anyway
