Tell me how long must I keep wanting things
Needing things when I have so much
There are many girls who have much less than me
Day by day, they make their way and find more in life than I can see
Tell me when will I learn to resist wanting things
Touching things that say do not touch
People that I meet seem to think Iím strong
They donít see inside of me, so they donít know Iím weak and often wrong
Tell me why must I keep wanting things
Needing things that just canít be mine
Tell me how long must I keep
Needing things, when I have so much.
There are many men who have much less than me,
Day by day they make their way.
And they find more in life thank I can see.
When will I learn to resist
Touching things that say "do not touch."
Peo-ple that I meet seem to think I am strong,
They don't see inside of me.
So they don't know I'm weak and often wrong.
Why must I keep WANTING THINGS,
Needing things that just can't be mine!
*(yes, WANTING THINGS,
that just can't...
