Lyrics to Chris Kirby’s “Arthritis Song”

ARTHRITIS SONG
chris kirby

“Don’t worry,” they say
“You think too much about it, someday
it will become all you are”
So I spent all my time
Got it out of my mind
And I find
I’m no better for it

I’m changing my style
It’s the only way around this, meanwhile
It’s become all I am
And I pray aloud each day
That you won’t make me say
Goodbye
Goodbye

Hands, don’t you quit me so easily
You don’t even know
Though you’ll never need me
Don’t go

I’m losing my hands
Years by the hourglass
So don’t tell me not to be scared
Until you play by the rules
Of heroes and fools
And lose
And be no better for it

I’m trying my best
To keep the pain at bay. The rest,
The ice, and the drugs are doing something
Although I’m not sure, exactly
Is it helping or killing me?
We’ll see
We’ll see

Hands, don’t you quit me so easily
You don’t even know
Though you’ll never need me
Don’t go

I’ve got a pact with the world
And I’m a fool of my word
It’s absurd
Absurd

Hands, don’t you quit me so easily
You don’t even know
Though you’ll never need me
Don’t go
