Paul Williams

You Tell Me

You tell me
because i don't know
why i feel this way

why i waste so much time
feeling lost and beaten

You tell me
why i'm on fire
like dry old paper

why it came slowly at first
like I was drowning in my life

You tell me
why we take what is not ours
then cannot give it back

why we end up like strangers
groping in the dark

You tell me
