Why

Annie Lennox’s song was on the radio today as I drove home from work.

It’s perfect for what I’m feeling:

She’s a genius.

Here are the lyrics:

“Why”

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I’m sorry for the things I’ve done
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
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
WhyI 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 is 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…
WhyThis 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
I don’t think you know what I feel
I don’t think you know what I feel
You don’t know what I feel

  1. WOW… who knew that so many of the songs from our youth would be about what we would end up dealing with in our adulthood. So many now have so much more meaning. I feel as tho I’m actually listening to all the lyrics for the first time.

    • Me, too. And music is the language of my soul. HUUUUGE music fan (some women have shoes, I have music).

      However, it’s soooo hard for me to listen to music like I did. I end up tearing up or really hearing the lyrics for the first time, too!

      Hugs
