Martha Live

This song is by Brian Webb.

My friend martha
Works at the bar down the street
And I don't like her like that
But I think she's pretty
She's been cryin all night
And talkin' about a boy

And I said, martha
Ya know it's not some kind of contest
That says in the end
Aw if you love someone the most
You get to keep 'em
And she said, well maybe it should be

So go on
And run your fingers through me
Like I am barely tangled hair
Pull just a little I swear
I'll be better for the wear
And cup your hands
Like you're tryin' to hold somethin' precious
'Cause I been thinkin' I am

And I don't wanna let you go
I don't know why
Don't know why
And I don't want to let you know
And I don't know why
Don't know why
Don't know why

Oh but then again
There's always reason
For letting go
You're just caught in a season
With nothing to show
And that's all right love
Babe it's only life
You wrestlin everything you've been
Sixteen again yeah
Sixteen
Yeah you're sixteen again

And it's a brave new world
For my little generation
I'm just afraid we might die
From a case of low expectations
Oh it ain't so much that
We don't wanna be happy
No we do
It's just everyone's a little scared of gettin' sad

Yeah but martha well she likes girls now
So we got that in common
She said, if they wanna love me man
I ain't gonna try to stop'em
Oh careful now
You know love that's love
It can hurt us all the same baby
It can hurt us all the same

And I don't wanna let you go
And I don't know why
I don't know why
Yeah I don't wanna let you know why
And I still don't know why
We may never know why
I may never know why

Oh but then again
Well there's always reason for letting go
You're just caught in a season
With nothin' to show
And that's all right love
It's only life
We're wrestlin everything we've been
Ah sixteen again
You're sixteen
You're sixteen again
Yeah you're sixteen again babe
You're six, yeah you're sixteen all over again
