Why
Why
How many times do I have to try
To tell you
That I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
Ooh
But when I start to try to tell you
That’s when you have to tell me
Hey
This kind of trouble’s only just
Begun ooh yeah
I tell myself too many times
Why don’t you ever learn to
Keep your big mouth shut
That’s why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me why
Why
I may be mad I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still hear what you’re thinking
Uuh
And I’ve heard it said too many times
That you’d be better off
Besides
Why can’t you see this boat is sinking
This boat is sinking
This boat is sinking
Let’s go down to the water’s edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out
Turning inside out
Tell me why
Tell me why
This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I’ll never tread
These are the dreams I’ll dream instead
This is the joy that’s seldom spread
These are the tears the tears we shed
This is the fear this is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we’ve spent
And this is what they represent
This is how I feel
Do you know how I feel
‘Cause I don’t think you know how I feel
I don’t think you know what I feel
I don’t think you know what I feel
You don’t know what I fear
