How Do I Say


How do I say that something's bugging me
When sadness is something they don't want to see
How do I say that I'm not alright
Without accidentally causing fright
How do I say I'm going through strife
Without feeling like I'm butting into their life
How do I talk about the things on my mind
If to my emotions they seem to be blind
How do I say how I feel
How do I say that this hurt is real

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
