I Don't Understand Anything
Tracey Thorn
What is it that I think I need?
Is there love in me that wants to be freed?
Or is it selfishness and ego we carry with us everywhere that we go?
This feeling that life's incomplete - do you feel that too?
Do you want what I want?
And if I should start to cry, and I can't begin to tell you why, and I stumble when I begin, it's cause I don't understand anything.
People say that we're so close, how can there be something that I don't know.
Oh but even though I share your bed, baby, I don't get inside your head.
This feeling of some mystery - do you feel that too?
Do you know what I mean?
And if I should start to cry, and I can't begin to tell you why, and I stumble, watch me slip.
My fingers lose their grip.
Now I'm down on my knees, is that what you wanted to see?
And if I should start to cry, and I can't begin to tell you why, and I stumble when I begin, it's cause I don't understand anything.
You reach for me from miles away, you reach for me from miles away.
What is it that I think I need?
What is it that I think I need?
