Lyrics

This Ain’t Happening To You
(Penwell, Sharp)

Don’t tell me what to do. This ain’t happening to you. You don’t know what this feels like. What I’m going through. Don’t tell me how to see it. How I’ve got to believe it. It won’t be this way forever. You don’t know if that’s true. I ain’t trying to be hurtful. I ain’t trying to be cruel. The last time I held on tight to something I lost it. If I keep the faith I might lose that too. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. It’s the basement floor of hell that you honestly mean well. I can’t move a muscle from right where I fell. I gotta go where ever I know I won’t hear another word about the big world, the strong girl I am. I don’t mean to be resentful. I’m feeling like a fool.
The last time I held on tight to something I lost it. If I keep the faith I might lose that too. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. I don’t mean to be willful, but don’t tell me what to do. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you. This ain’t happening to you.
