Why
Annie Lennox

How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
Hey... this kind of trouble's only just begun
I tell myself too many times
Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me...
Why
Why

I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking
And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off
Besides...
Why can't you see this boat is sinking
(this boat is sinking this boat is sinking)
Let's go down to the water's edge
we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out turning inside out
Tell me...
Why
Tell me...
Why

This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears...
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel
'cause i don't think you know how I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
I don't think you know what I fear
You don't know what I fear


Arista (1992)

ne Ann Lennox

Called "the greatest white soul singer alive" Annie Lennox has never failed to disappoint or demonstrate why!

Annie Lennox is a Scottish (born in Aberdeen) musician, vocalist, and Academy Award-winning songwriter. She is both a solo artist and was the lead singer of the musical duo Eurythmics.

Annie Lennox was trained in classical music and studied the flute at the Royal Academy of Music in London; she did not matriculate, however, in 2006, the academy made her an honorary Fellow.  She was also made a Fellow of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in that same year.

In the early years of her career, Lennox gained notable fame as a member of the duo (with Dave Stewart) The Eurythmics during a time which was remarkable for her androgynous dress and high-grossing hits such "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)." She did eventually launch a solo career  in 1992 which met with equal success.  Her debut album Diva spawned hit singles such as "Why" which grossed sales of over 2 million copies in the US alone and earned her 3 Grammy Awards nominations.

Her second solo album, Medusa, with the hit single "No More I Love You's" was also a hit peaking at #11 and going platinum by the end of 1995.
