How can I go forward when I don't know which way I'm facing?
how can I go forward when I don't know which way to turn?
how can I go forward into something I'm not sure of?
oh no, oh no
How can I have feeling when I don't know if it's a feeling?
how can I feel something if I just don't know how to feel
how can I have feelings when my feelings have always been denied?
oh no, oh no

You know life can be long
and you got to be so strong
and the world is so tough
sometimes I feel I've had enough

How can I give love when I don't know what it is I'm giving?
