I Wish I Knew

I wish I knew
How to make you smile
How to make you laugh
I wish I knew
Just what to say
To make you love life
And help you understand.
I wish I knew
Why I can't be perfect
Why I'm overshadowed all my life
By my sister and by you
You with your holier than thou
Your face
And your boys who all fall in love with you.
I wish I knew
How to tell people how I feel
Without sounding dumb or needy
Or overly mean.
I wish I knew
How they look at me
What that expression means
What the underlying message in their speech really is
I wish i knew
How to make you all see
That I'm tired
So tired
And I need help sometimes.
