Barbra Streisand - "No Matter What Happens" lyrics

Look at how she look at me.
I can never look at her that way.
Full of all the feelings and the soft
Unspoken words that lovers say.
In all the words and all the books
I wish there were a way to say that
What she's taught me
Isn't written anywhere
And I'm supposed to be the one
Who's wise.
One thing is certain,
I can never be what she
Expects of me.

I've wanted the shadows,
I don't anymore.
No matter what happens,
I won't anymore.
I've run from the sunlight-
Afraid it saw too much.
The moon had the one light
I bathed in-
I walked in.
I held in my feelings
And close ev'ry door.
No matter what happens,
I can't anymore.

There's someone who must hear
The words I've never spoken.
Tonight if he were here
My silence would be broken.
I need him to touch me-
To know the love that's in my heart-
The same heart that tells me
To see myself-
To free myself-
To be myself at last!

For too many mornings
The curtains were drawn.
It's time they were opened
To welcome the dawn.
A voice deep inside
Is getting stronger.
I can't keep it quiet any longer.
No matter what happens,
It can't be the same anymore.
I promise it won't be the same
