Tasheen -- WhyWhy Are You The One?I've built walls of stoneAround my heartI was my own queenI sat upon m throneNow my walls are crumpledMy defenses are downAnd I'm all alone.Why are you the one?Why are you the one?Why are you...?You are so KindWhen it's just you and meThen the number reaches threeYou changeLke before was a maskNow you drop the ax.Shake meWake MeJust don't let him break me!Your smile brought down my defensesYou words disarmed my guardI stepped closerYou lured me inYour knife was sharpYou hit me straight in my heart.Why are you the one?Why are you the one?Why are you...?Do you know what it is you do?How could you not?How could you?No one could be that cruel.But it's what you do.Shake meWake meJust don't let him break me!Why are you the one?Why are you the one?Why are you...?
When I Was Young TasheenWhen I was youngWhen I was youngI used to run barefootThrough dew wet grass of green.I found beautyWithin a flowerWithin the eyes of people I lovedIn the trees, in the trailIn every animal.When I was youngI was scared of thingsThat now I find a joke.I gre to appreciate beauty,And poetry,But now... I stay inside to seek itAnd wonderDo I findit at all?Without a childs clear bright eyesWithout a child's grasping quick mindIs what I seek what I find?
The Untitled of TashWhy?A thousand questionsBut above allWhy?Why when nothing's wrongDoes it feel like everything is?Not on thing to say"this upsets me"Not one big problemBut a thousand little onesAlone they are insignificantTiny pricks of realityBut all togetherThey are worse then a gaping woundMore staggering then a physical blow.They leave me in tattersWhy???These weights...That are put on a grain of sand at a timeWill soon overwhelm meAs I stagger under the weightI know they will soon crush meWhy?A thousand and one questionsBut above allWhy?
If --- TasheenIf...If I never botheredWould you even care?If I never waved againWould you give me one long stare?If I never spoke to youWould you even notice?If I never smiled anymoreWould you even try?If I never waited for you jokesWould you find some one else to laugh?If I never waited for youWould you ever walk with me?If I never looked at youWould you give me the time of day?If I never cried for youWould you push me away?If I never needed youWould you leave?If I left and never came backWould you even remember?
