Song: Why Can'T I? - Poem by Lora Seger

I've already wasted away
trying to help, prevent, do anything right
tell me why cant i sing without crying anymore?
why oh why

saw you today, you were real upset
said things you thought were true and they probably are
say what you want, do what you please
i just want to be there for you, dont care if its the same for me

just come out from hiding, even though you think you arent
stop blocking your heart, because you know its there somewhere
you just dont even know what love is anymore do you?
why do i even care, why do i even try
try so hard to get inside of you
want to be there for you always with you
but i know i cant do that
because you wont let me

you may think you know what i am and what i do
but you dont now do you?
you probably feel the same as me, you probably dont even know who you are anymore
just go away, dont leave me behind though, i want to make you feel better
you call me a fool and say i dont know
well i have news for you..
i do....so much...i know ive felt it over and over
dont push me away just because i care

i know that little trick that you do even though you think im clueless i do
and yes its true, i dont know who i am anymore never really did
dont know the first thing about me i dont even know what my heart color is
trying to help you, feel so sad yes its true but if you knew
you'd let me in
cause i know that i could try to help i know id atleast try
i know you think im just a silly girl but i know


saw you today, you were real upset
said things you thought were true and they probably are
say what you want, do what you please
i just want to be there for you, dont care if its the same for me


dont even try and play with me
dont even try
you think you know but ive got news for you
you dont.....
TRY SO HARD! ! TO GET INSIDE BUT I CANT! ! MY HEART ISNT THERE ANYMORE! !
FRAID I LOST IT ALONG THE WAY! !

you may think this songs is stupid, i know i do
you'll probably laugh and call me silly when you read it but ive got news for you..
i dont care what you think because just think not what i know
you may think you can try so hard and you'll be alright
just bury it inside, but you cant i could tell that right now

you dont know how lost i am, so dont even try
you think you do but dont even try that with me
i know me better than that
im the only one who knows....me better than that
you may think you know and you do have a clue
but im a lot deeper than you think you know
