The Way We Do (Louis Toliver Jr - USA/Austin, Texas)
I don’t understand why we react the way we do
The fear that we are wrong, or wronged
Whatever some else told us wrong is
Maybe it’s just people that are wrong
The greed of you, or me, we
You don’t understand why we react the way we do
But where are we going to go?
Who is it that we know?
It’s just us here, fate’s choosing
Yet you act like I am nothing but a leech
My life is valued each time I walk away
I do walk away often
Just not from you
Or whatever wrong I did to you
Or you did to me
Is it really wrong?
What if we are right?
What if it we are supposed to happen?
All of love’s short term pain, uncertainty
Masking love’s infinite pleasures, successes
We don’t understand why we react the way we do
You and me
