My Give A Damn's Busted

Album: Delicious Surprise (2005)
Charted: 63
  • Well you filled up my head
    With so many lies.
    You twisted my heart
    'til something snapped inside.
    I'd like to give it one more try
    But my give a damn's busted.

    You can crawl back home
    Say you were wrong,
    Stand out in the yard
    And cry all night long.
    Go ahead and water the lawn.
    My give a damn's busted.

    I really want to care,
    I want to feel somethin'
    Let me dig a little deeper...

    (2nd verse)

    You can say you've got issues.
    You can say you're a victim.
    It's all your parents fault,
    I mean, after all you didn't pick 'em
    Maybe somebody else's got time to listen.
    My give a damn's busted.

    Well your therapist says
    It was all a mistake
    A product of the prozac
    And your co-dependent ways
    So ... who's your enabler these days?
    My give a damn's busted.


    I really want to care,
    I want to feel somethin'
    Let me dig a little deeper...
    Still nothin

    It's a desperate situation,
    No tellin' what you'll do.
    If I don't forgive you,
    You say your life is through.
    Come on ... give me somethin' I can use.
    My give a damn's busted.


    Well, I really want to care
    I want to feel somethin'
    Let me dig a little deeper...
    Naw, man...

    Just nothin'
    You've really done it this time (haha)
    My give a damn's busted. Writer/s: TONY MARTIN, TOM SHAPIRO, JOE DIFFIE

  • Dave from Cullman, AlI like the song. I may not say the words out loud, but it reflects my attitude when people start whining and complaining to me about anything.
  • Paul from Marysville, WaGreat, great kiss-off song.
  • Nick from Las Vegas, NvJoe Diffie originally recorded the song on his 2001 album In Another World.
