Why?

Why do adults have to be in your business?

Why is it they can also make you cry?

They don't need to know why I'm in distress,

And that causes me to sometimes cry.

I've cried today

And can't help why,

I can't get past this,

And this causes me to sigh.

Why is it so easy to get your feelings hurt?

When they only care about winning the fight.

They become happy seeing those tears,

And don't really care for anything but what's right.

I've cried today

And can't help why,

I can't get past this,

And this causes me to sigh.

Why oh who is this so hard?

That a strong woman like me cries

Over something said to make me hurt

And when I'm asked why I cry, I have to lie.

I've cried today

And can't help why,

I can't get past this,

And this causes me to sigh.
