Annie Lennox – Why – 1992


    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

    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
    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
    Tell me
    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
    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
