no matter what happens lyrics – barbra streisand

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
