Lyrics

Whatever I say,
Whatever I do,
However I feel,
Whoever I know,
Whatever I wanted,
Whereever I go,
You've probably been there before.

Whatever I hope,
Whatever I need,
If ever you'd listen,
You'd never take heed,
What are we fighting for?
What am I waiting for?
Tell me now.

Whatever I fear,
What I wanted to be,
You always knew better,
Well better than me,
If you want to be free so much,
Here’s your opportunity,
You've probably been there before.

I try to get through,
But there's no-one at home,
Only when we're together,
Am I truly alone,
Just what are we waiting for?
What are we fighting for?
You've probably been there before.

Whatever I see,
Whatever I choose,
Whatever I did then,
You know that I'd lose,
What are we fighting for?
What do you take me for?
Tell me now.

Whatever I say,
Whatever I do,
However I feel,
Whoever I know,
What are we waiting for?
What are we fighting for?
You've probably been here before.
