"Why" (slightly borrowed from Annie Lennox)

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done

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

I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking

And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off
Why can't you see this boat is sinking?

Some things are better left unsaid

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 have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel
'cause I don't think you know how I feel

You don't know what I fear!
