Can she care without a reason

(Lyrics to a song)

 

Can she care without a reason

Can she hope without a prayer

Can she understand without feeling

Can she live without a care

 

There are questions she canít answer

For her words wonít reach that far

Her heart is filled with feelings

But she canít see what they are

 

She sees a world that thrives on hate

As it spins around its lies

She sees a world that others see

Yet thereís love within her eyes

 

Can you see the pain within her

Itís a mountain that stands too tall

Itís far too high for her to climb

When sheís so afraid to fall

 

Now thereís little left for trusting,

As her friends they fade with years

And no one wants to take the time

To investigate her tears,

 

Well itís time to put aside the things

That you really want to do

Itís time for her to need someone

That someone should be you.

 

Now you say you really love her

And thatís all so well and fine

But when she looks are you going away

Do you love her all the time

 

Itís time for things to start to change

Itís time for you to know

Itís time for her to make believe

That she canít see you go.

 

Will she smile as you are leaving

Will she try to carry on

Will she laugh when you are by the door

Will she cry when you are gone

 

Well nowís the time to do whatís right

Or itís time for her to die

Itís time for you to really care

Or itís time to say good-bye

 

Can she care without a reason

Can she hope without a prayer

Can she understand without feeling

Can she live without a care

 

There are questions that she canít answer

There are things she cannot do

Her life is hanging on a single thread

That thread just might be you.
