Annie



ANNIE LENNOX - WHY

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey...this kind of trouble's only just begun
I tell myself too many times
Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me...
Why
Why

I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking
And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off
Besides...
Why can't you see this boat is sinking
(This boat is sinking this boat is sinking)
Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out
Turning inside out

Tell me...
Why
Tell me...
Why

This is the book I've never read
These are the words I've never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears...
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel?
'Cause I don't think you know how I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
I don't think you know what I fear
You don't know what I fear



Annie. A voz pura e cristalina que descobri na adolescência feliz. Esta é a canção. This is the Song. Se tivesse de escolher era esta. Why. Feitiço, o arrepio de sempre. Nos anos de esperança. Na euforia. Na desilusão. This is the fear. Partir. Voltar. Magoar. Ser Magoado. These are the dreams I'll dream instead. Ter saudades. Não ter saudades. Some things are better left unsaid.
Acreditar. Duvidar. Negar. Amar. Ser Amado. Escolher. Mudar. These are the years that we’ve spent. And this is what they represent. And this is how I feel. Que nunca se vá o afecto. Mais importante: Vivemos. Why.

Annie, querida amiga: continuas cá. Like an old chap, after all these years. Esta canção tem um dom, sabes? Why. Reconcilia-me com qualquer coisa que these are the words I’ve never said, these are the tears we shed, this is the path I’ll never tread.
