IT'S ALRIGHT

I could have died, not knowing you
              but I didn't...
       I could a passed on by
       not hearing your voice
              but I didn't...
  Sometimes life comes at cha
In a hurry ...all fast ,and hurried
I won't look up , or act like I care
cause, if you didn't come along
        I just wouldn't care
              but I didn't
Sometimes I feel all locked up
        and in my bunker
   not knowing time or place
It's that War that took my place
    and why I hide my face
             It's so trajic...
          Its hard to miss
      what you never had
      but when I found out
        what was missin'
             I felt so sad...
      It's all catchin' now
    since time has passed
the hurt , and the tears come
    but never seem to last...
  I could a died without
      feeling your touch
           but I didn't
and not knowing you cared
  only to stay locked up
           but I didn't...
