The Desire To Feel
My feelings just cannot explain
What does it feel like in the rain
Or how the moon looks in the night
Or what it feels like to be right
Or what it feels like just to stare
Into the blankness of the air
Or how it is to hug a friend
With love and care and sentiment
How does it feel to love for once
To have a thirst for sweet romance
To share an evening in a room
Oh, how I hope this happens soon
So I can feel that warm embrace
To give me courage, and some grace
So I can reach the world again
When will this happen: when?
When will I ever have the feeling that my thoughts always yearn?
When will I ever learn to feel, when will I ever learn?
Will it be days or months or years
By then I'll cry out all my tears
By then I'll gather many fears
By then my yearning disappears
And I will never, ever feel!
