about

The 'snack song' was one of two almost carbon copy songs written specifically for the 'Beth' CD. I had a choice, but time was ticking away and I felt the lyrics and music had more of a universal appeal than a song about a girl ready to fall to her death from a forty story apartment building in New York's luxury Manhattan district (Angel Gets Her Wings). It's difficult to gauge the popularity of a song based on the reactions from the coffee-house crowd, but I've yet to regret my decision. Perhaps 'Angel' will be resurrected at a later date ...

lyrics

I see your wings are clipped again
Do you break every time you bend
Still … I worry Still … I worry

I used to love your late night crunch
You’ve lost the spark, now there’s no rush
Should I worry (still … I worry)

Oh baby, should I worry (still … I worry)

I got a picture of you on my shelf
Got a little heart left, keep it for myself
Should I worry (still … I worry)

I see you breathin’ up and down his back
Is last night’s lover tomorrow’s snack
Should I worry (still ... I worry)
Oh baby, should I worry (still … I worry)

I live without you, I sleep without you
Why should I worry?
Dream about you, don’t speak about you
Why should I worry?
Oh baby, should I worry (still … I worry)


I used to chuckle up your every rant and rave
But now I buckle up, ‘cause baby, I’m no slave
Should I worry (stil l… I worry)
Oh, baby, should I worry (still … I worry)
