James's blog Comments Thanks... Thanks... :) Backatcha. This may very well be the first time anyone has ever said, "thanks" for one of these after dark music videos. Sometimes I actually believe in heaven when I hear voices like these. James Protzman Why lyrics 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 is 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 never read These are the words I 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 feel You don't know what I feel James Protzman Annie Lennox James, this song is so apropro for the Newtown massacre. Saw Annie Lennox in person at the United Nations CSW 54th Conference in 2010 and she's as powerful in person as this song. Thanks for posting.
