I went to the doctor to open up my heart
Got my symptoms all mixed up
He didn't know where to start
Ain't no doctor in this world
That can keep a broken heart from falling apart

'Cause they don't know
Oh, they don't know

I went to my mother to show me how to cry
She said "Baby let me she'd your tears, I'll make the sacrifice"
But ain't no crying in this world's gonna take the place of mine

'Cause they don't know
They don't know

Some questions have answers
And others just lead you on
Some answers don't answer enough
But I know
The answer is love

But they don't know
Oh, they don't know

I went to my brother to help me understand
Asked him why they're walking by
Don't seem to give a damn
Don't they see the love they pair's walking by empty-handed

'Cause they don't know
They don't know

I went to my father to get some prayer for me
He said I hold my head up high 'cause there's something there for me
Crying but I'm smiling through
'Cause suddenly I see

What they don't know
They don't know that

Sometimes,

Some questions have answers
And others just lead you on
Some answers don't answer enough
But I know
The answer is love

But they don't know
Oh, they don't know...

    A song in which it tells the audience the world doesn't know what she feel's like and her feelings towards something important to her that no one else can understand. Lovely song.
