(1995) Do You Care
Do you care if I am happy,
And that I’m proud?
Do you like to see me smile,
And not drown in my tears?
Do you care if I am sad,
Or that I feel alone?
Do you mind if I suddenly cry,
Or if I hide in a secret place?
Do you care if I get lonely,
And that I feel abandoned?
Do you think that you should help,
Or if you should just stay away?
Do you care if I get mad,
Or if I throw a fit?
Do you feel like I do sometimes,
Do you understand my heart?
So, now I ask you before I go,
Do you care?
Sometimes the skies of tomorrow look bright
crystal blue and full of hope
telling you the best is on its way..
Sometimes the waters of yesterday seem black
showing nothing but the pain you've felt
the tears you've cried; the sorrow you're forced to hide..
Sometimes the world of Today seems revealing
