Can't Do Anything Right

Why can't I do anything right?

I can't give you happiness

And I can't give you love

No matter how I've tried

And everyone's screaming at me

"Why can't you do anything right?"

But I cannot even answer right

Because I don't know anything

And I certainly don't know that

I mess up everything I touch

And I wonder to myself

Why can't I do anything right?

Everything I say is wrong

And when I go left, I should've gone right

Because I can't do anything right

I miss every chance I get

And I make all of the wrong choices

And I choose all of the wrong answers

Why can't I do anything right?

For I'd give anything for you

But I don't really know how

Because I don't know anything

And I can't do anything right

Oh, why can't I do anything right?

    Sorrowful, indeed. It seems, though, an excellent acknowledgment of our very real condition and fallibility. While our deceitful heart persuades us that we are so promising, instead, in a very real sense, we really can't do anything right. Fascinating, sad, and thought-provoking. Bittersweetly beautiful.

    This is sad.... It reminds me of how I always have a hard time making the right decision, and how many people always ask me "Why can't you do anything right?" But it's beautiful poetically, beautiful and saaad.
