What About Me?

(Grant Bentley)

Written by Grant Bentley
Moving is a definite transition. Sometimes a move is filled with anticipation and excitement - like when I went away to college for the first time. Other times it can feel like a crap shoot. Imagine how it must feel to a child?
All our dogs have to go
To other homes they don’t know.
It’s all because, we have to move.
My precious things in the curio
Have all been boxed for another show.
Wherever it is, I hope it starts soon.

CHORUS
But, hey, WHAT ABOUT ME?
Will you give me away if I don’t fill a useful need, and
Hey, WHAT ABOUT ME?
Will you box me in so I can’t breathe?
WHAT ABOUT ME?

I overheard you makin’ plans
For all the time left on my hands.
Wouldn’t it be nice, a doctor in the family?
My college days will be paid
From a special fund that was carefully saved.
All I gotta do is go along gracefully.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
I need to make some of my own mistakes
Otherwise how will I know
When it’s time to make my own kind of break
Even from, from the ones, who love me so?

All of my stuffed animals
Are stuffed in a bag black and beautiful.
Will they ever see the light of day?
The moving van has gobbled my bed,
My curio. The house is dead.
My entire life is drivin’ away.

REPEAT CHORUS

WHAT ABOUT ME?
What about my dreams? (What about?)
What about this song? (What about?)
