Everyone wants to know

Everyone want to know why
but it is not so simple
unless you want a lie

Everyone wants to know
the truth of the matter
I can no longer disguise

Everyone wants to know why
and all i can say
I put my heart in the matter

Everyone wants to know why
and I wonder why they constantly ask me
What I do shouldn't be their matter

Everyone wants to know why
and simply I utter
the changes in this body
could stand the clutter no longer

Finally I ask myself why
and answer is clearly shown to me
The changes in this body
ask that I seek my true story
ask that  I be my own history
ask that I shine this light of mine unendingly.
