~Do I Deserve This~
Written By: The Engineer

I've only just started to walk
and I'm still learning to talk
Just turned three years old last November
I'm still a little too young to figure out
what it is she wants me to remember

I'm trying to stand tall
oh, but I feel so small
when she begins shouting at me
there's no where to hide
and I'm too scared to try
I brace myself as the blows begin to fall

And I know she won't stop until I cry...
and I wondered...

(Chorus)
Do I deserve this?
Have I really been this bad?
Is this how growing up is supposed to feel?
I try to take everything in stride but
something must be broken inside
I'm far too hurt to be fixed by a kiss
I must deserve this.

Even then I had chances to tell
But I couldn't see a way out of my shell
I was always too scared to move forward
and they all say that God hates a coward
This is why I have nothing left to give
This is why I don't deserve to live
and I still lie awake and wonder late at night

(Chorus)
Do I deserve this?
Have I really been this bad?
Is this how growing up is supposed to feel?
I try to take everything in stride but
something must be broken inside
I'm still too hurt to be fixed by a kiss
I must deserve this.

Looking back, how could I simply not care
as I watched my life passing by
like a seedling through the stormy air
I grew up never knowing how love feels
All this time spent spinning my wheels
Marching on but never getting anywhere

[bridge]
But I'm all grown now, and I'm seeing things more
that had always been invisible to me before

(To Chorus)
Did I deserve this?
Was I ever really that bad?
Was that how growing up was supposed to feel?
I tried to take everything in stride but
something had been broken inside
and I was too hurt to be fixed by a kiss
But for the first time now, I don't think...

I don't think I deserved this.
