So What?

Ani DiFranco

who's gonna give a shit?
who's gonna take the call?
when you find out that the road is painted on the wall.
and you turn up to top volume
and you're just sitting there in pause
with your feral little secret scratching at you with its claws.
and you're trying hard to figure out
just exactly how you feel
before you end up parked and sobbing forehead on the steering wheel.

and who are you now
and who were you then
that you thought somehow
you could just pretend?
that you could figure out
the mathematics of regret.
it takes two beers to remember you
and five to forget
that i loved you so.
yeah, i loved you, so what?
yeah, i loved you, so what?

how many times undone
can one person be
as they're careening through the facade of their favorite fantasy?
you just close your eyes slowly
like you're waiting for a kiss
and hope some lonely little power will pull you out of this.
but none comes at first
and little comes at all
and when an inspiration finally hits you it barely even breaks your fall.

and who are you then
and who are you now
that you can pretend
that it'll all work out?
subtract out the impact and a fall is all you get.
here's two beers to remember why
and three more to forget
that i loved you so.
yeah, i loved you, so what?
i loved you, so what?
