Tom Sparks: Music

What About

(performed by Stacy Donahue)
written by Julie Barlow, Stacy Donahue & Tom Sparks
One quiet night she reached for the light,
And watched me 'til I fell asleep.
We're all alone, once again you're not home,
Not thinking what the future may bring.
You think no one knows, but the rumors still grow,
I just want to ask you these things;

What about love, what about trust?
What about her, what about us?
What about the man you promised to be?
What about guilt, what about shame?
What about causing all this pain?
What about forever; what about our family?

You're finally home but she's still alone,
She prays, but not sure what for.
I hear her say "Fine", she's gonna give you one more time,
'Cause she still can't find the strength to shut the door.
And now I hear crying 'cause once again, you were lying,
I don't want to hear it anymore.

What about love, what about trust?
What about her, what about us?
What about the man you promised to be?
What about guilt, what about shame?
What about causing all this pain?
What about forever, what about our family?

I have a daddy living in sin, and a momma, the hell from within.
I have learned from the mistakes they've made that a family doesn't live this way.

What about love, what about trust?
What about her, what about us?
What about the man you promised to be?
What about guilt, what about shame?
What about causing all this pain?
What about forever? (repeat - end)
