World Don't Owe Me

from A Crash Course in Roses

words and music by Catie Curtis 1996

The world dont owe me nothing though I always want it to
The world dont owe me happy, the world dont owe me a love like you
The world dont owe me nothing even though Im on my knees
Not the things I took for granted
Not the things I thought I got for free

But I will lay down my troubles on the ground in front of you
And play, let me play just one more song
Thats my rescue

The world dont owe me flowers even though I planted seeds
The world dont owe me sunshine, the world dont owe me what I need
The world dont owe me a reason for when the nights too long
The world dont owe me nothing I dont understand all thats gone wrong

But I will lay down my troubles on the ground in front of you
And play, let me play just one more song
Thats my rescue

The world dont owe me a highway, dont owe me a train
The world dont owe me an easy way out
Here it comes again another kind of pain

And I will lay down my troubles on the ground in front of you
And play, let me play just one more song
Thats my rescue
My rescue
