Why is it

What is it I’m following?
Where’s the voice I hear?
What’s the face I’m seeing?
What is leading me?

Why is it I cannot stop?
My heart is not my own
Following a map I can’t see
Traveling on my own

Why is it I’m searching?
For things I cannot find
Is there someone waiting for me
At the end of the line

What is it I’m following?
Where’s the voice I hear?
What’s the face I’m seeing?
What is leading me?

Why is it I love you?
When it seems to be
That you cannot feel the same way
When you look at me

Why is it I’m looking?
For someone to love
Why do I have to be wanted,
To feel good inside

What is it I’m following?
Where’s the voice I hear?
What’s the face I’m seeing?
What is leading me?

Why is it I’m different
When I want to be
Loved not laughed at safe in your arms
I wouldn’t want to change

One day
You may understand
What happened in my past so that I
Cannot trust you

One day
You may understand
How it feels to me whenever
You are near

One of us
Finds it hard
To admit that she could
Ever love you

One of us
Finds it hard
To believe that you could
Ever love her

What is it I’m following?
Where’s the voice I hear?
What’s the face I’m seeing?
What is leading me home?

Why is it

Artist's Description

This is the third of my songs (im not putting them all o, just a select few, ie, the ones fit for viewing…)
I know it’s a bit depressing, and it sounds a hell of a lot better sung to piano, but it’s the first one i put music too, and it has quite a lot of meaning for me, as i wrote it at a time when i was unhappy having just split up with my boyfriend. Also, Loz likes it, so here you go lozzle!
