Reisa L. Gerber – Maybe You Would Understand lyrics
Maybe You Would Understand (Why)

My friend didn't feel well for awhile.
She wouldn't laugh, no, no,
She wouldn't smile.
She got violent one rainy afternoon-
They called the cops, it was over soon

Now she had more pain in her mind
Than "Sister Morphine"
But they say "She needs a drug to keep her high"
But if you had been some places
Where she's been,
Maybe you would start to wonder "Why"-yi-yi

My friend, he had noplace to go-
His mother and his father tried to get him to
Come home.
But he'd spent so much time tryig to get away,
From them, he said, "Aint coming back"-
They found him on a parkbench, unconscious-
Look at his arms-you'll see the tracks.


My friend was a genius at his school
He never cursed, never drank,
And followed the golden Rule.
Oneday he hung out on the corner
With a gang of I'll repute-
He raped a girl
"because he thought that she was cute".

Dedicated to: The Rolling Stones
