Why Can't You?

I feel like the oceans and the seas
No matter what you say, you don't understand
And now the storm is coming,
And the waves are crashing down,
And there you stand
Why can't you just listen to me?
I feel like the bottom of this shoe
The more I follow you, the more I'm worn out
And now you're running faster,
And I'm trying to keep up,
And you're still going
Why can't you just slow down?
I feel like the firefly in this jar
No matter how I shine, I can't escape
And now you're shaking me up,
And I'm just about burned out,
And you don't care
Why can't you say you're sorry?
I feel like the truck in our backyard
Time's going by and I'm stuck here
And you won't repair it,
And the tires are going flat,
And here I sit
Why can't you just let me go?
