"Why do they hurt me"

Wendy Mitchell 1981 (West Liberty)

Why do I feel Why do I hurt Why do I miss her Why do I get in pain Why do I Try Why Do I care Why do I feel Why do I drop my life on the ground Why do I seem to allways failed in my dreams Why do I keep crying over and over for you My heart won't stop beating my head hurts my heart hurts my feelings don't hurt but I still feel the short of breath on my lungs Why does she forget me after all I done Why does she forget me Why do I get scared of life itself Will they love me for me Will they care for me for me Will they hurt me Will they crush me Will they put me away in a box will they open me and my heart Will they put me in a box Will they unravel me Will they love and care for me Will they water me feed me and take care of me never hurt me no more please love me for me Earthy Mother Earthy
