Bad Advice

This song is by Chicago and appears on the album Chicago 16 (1982).

She said
Tell me what it's all about
I said
Why, why, why?
It's just something
You could do without
You better try, try try

She said
I can't reach you
On the telephone
I can't hold you
When you're not at home
You keep saying
That you're all alone
That's a lie, lie, lie

Bad advice
Has me down and undone
Got to try again
To believe in myself

Look at me
I'm alone in the end
Can you see me falling
Falling down

I said
Mama can you get it straight?
She said
Why, why, why?
I wanna tell you
That it just can't wait
So let's try, try, try

She said, I don't care
Where you might have gone
I don't care 'cause
You've done me wrong
You been doin' it far too long
So goodbye, bye, bye

Bad advice
Has me down and undone
Got to try again
To believe in myself

Look at me
I'm alone in the end
Can you see me falling
Falling down

She said
Tell me what it's all about
I said
Why, why, why?
It's just something
You can do without
You better try, try, try

I can't reach you
On the telephone
I can't hold you
When you're not at home
You keep saying
That you're all alone
That's a lie, lie, lie
