You Do Nothing - 9/14/11
Never a thank you and never a thought.
Never 'Heres some cash for the food you bought'.
Never pick up a finger to lend a helping hand.
You never do anything and that I cant stand.
You never pay a bill and never wash a dish.
I never come home to an empty sink, but that is my wish.
You never do anything and it depresses me so,
And I wont tell you, so you'll never know.
I will hold it inside and continue to be sad.
I'm afraid if I say anything that you'll be mad.
But if you still do nothing day after day,
That it will push me further away.
