This song is by Allison Crowe and appears on the album Spiral (2010) and on the album Heirs + Grievances (2016).

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But every time I go to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun

I told myself too many times
Why don't you 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?
Tell me 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 that 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 your 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 never read
And these are the words I never said
And this is the path I'll never tread

And these are the dreams I'll dream instead
And this is the joy that's seldom spread
And these are the tears, the tears we've shed

This is the fear
And this is the dread
And these are the contents of my head

These are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
This is how I feel

Do you know how I feel?

I don't think you know how I, why I, feel
