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

Why

 

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

 

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 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
