REASONS
(Written by Julie Foai)                


Almost don’t remember
What she looked like now
So many years, too many tears
And things I didn’t know how to say

She was afraid I know
But it was hard for me to forgive
In her will to survive                      
It was hard for others
who were in her way


Sometimes she'd break down and cry
I could never understand why

But she had her reasons  
And though they made her seem a fool to me. She had her reasons


Poetry and pottery
And writing children’s tales
Brought out the best and left the rest
The things I’d rather didn’t stay

The joy I still remember
The fun and crazy times
Clouded though I must confess
By things I keep locked far away

 

Sometimes she'd break down and cry
I could never understand why

But she had her reasons
she had her reasons  
Though they made her seem a fool to me
She had her reasons


I’d catch her when she was alone
Watch her while she’s on the phone
There’d be a strange look in her eye
Like maybe things weren’t right

 

She had her reasons  
She had her reasons
And though they made her seem a fool to me.  She had her reasons


Almost don’t remember
What she looked like now
So many years, too many tears
And things I didn’t know how to say
