Questions

What is missing inside of me
that refuses to believe
I am worth more?
 
That this treatment
I have received
is acceptable?
 
Instead of being taken
to the top of the mountain
I was left to rot in a ditch
 
Declarations of love
Duplicitous, dishonorable
yet believable
 
Now I am a warrior
fighting for her life
with amputated limbs
 
My heart in need of healing
Doubting and doubtful
Scarred with cynicism
 
Why do I fear abandonment
by someone capable
of delivering cruelty?

Why?

Why?

Was I really flirting
with danger?
Should I have just let
things slide?
Eventually my cynicism
would have won that battle
Why had I even tried?
 
Impossible to communicate
with you anymore
but we needed to have
that one important talk
You lash out as always
Don’t shoot the messenger
You have already crippled me
and I can no longer walk

Song Lyric Sunday – Don’t Know Why

This week’s prompts for Song Lyric Sunday, from Jim Adams, are Who, What, When, Where, Why and How. I went with this lovely song, ‘Don’t Know Why’, by Norah Jones. I hope you’ll enjoy it too.

Norah Jones (born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar; March 30, 1979) is an American singer, songwriter, and pianist. She has won multiple awards and has sold more than 50 million records worldwide. Billboard named her the top jazz artist of the 2000–2009 decade. She has won nine Grammy Awards and was ranked 60th on Billboard magazine’s artists of the 2000–2009 decade chart.

In 2002, Jones launched her solo music career with the release of Come Away with Me, which was a fusion of jazz with country music and pop. It was certified Diamond, selling over 27 million copies. The record earned Jones five Grammy Awards, including the Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist. Jones is the daughter of Indian sitar player and composer Ravi Shankar, and is the half-sister of fellow musician Anoushka Shankar. (Information courtesy of Wikipedia)

Lyrics
Don't Know Why
Norah Jones


I waited 'til I saw the sun
I don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come
 
When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand
 
My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever
 
Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I'll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road alone
 
My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind
Forever
 
Something has to make you run
I don't know why I didn't come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come
