How Can I? – Saturday 19th October 1996

How Can I ?

i need to understand your confusion
but how can i?
when you do not understand it yourself
i need to understand you
but how can i?
when i do not understand myself
i need to know why you hide yourself away
but how can i?
when i am scared myself of some days
time it seems is changeless
it has a thousand ways
i need to understand our situation
is it really about old and young
or is it just your trepidation
i need to understand your fears
but how can i?
when i am smudging our make-up with my tears
i take a breath, behind the fence
the one which divides us now
it is nice just to talk
but i would rather have the touch
but how can i?
when you say we must give it up
but how can i?
when i feel so much
how can i?
you tell me, how can i?
