To Be Sensitive

from by Kara Square & Piero Peluche

lyrics

I don’t cry, I hold it all inside
‘Til I’m alone and I ball
Unlike my dad, he’d get mad
Take it out on us
With his hand, sometimes with his fist

Now they say that I’m too sensitive
That I care too much how others feel
They say that I should just be a man
And I wish that I could
But I’m haunted every day
By the men who hold us back
Lock us in this path
Of dominance, war, hate
And I see how it could be
If they could just try
To be sensitive. To be sensitive.

I don’t cry, I drown my sorrows
Every night at the bar
Just like my dad, but I get sad
Think about the past
All I’d have done, all I never will

Now they say that I’m too sensitive
That I care too much how others feel
They say that I should just be a man
And I wish that I could
But I’m haunted every day
By the men who hold us back
Lock us in this path
Of dominance, war, hate
And I see how it could be
If they could just try
To be sensitive. To be sensitive.

I don’t cry, ‘cept every single night
That I’m alone and lost by myself
Just like my dad, he never could
Escape his ways
Until he was no more.

Now they say that I’m too sensitive
That I care too much how others feel
They say that I should just be a man
And I wish that I could
But I’m haunted.
