lyrics

Don’t ask me if I can’t see
Blindness isn’t something to be taken so lightly

Maybe I haven’t read all the books
Maybe I don’t have the looks
Like you’ve got

Don’t ask me if I can’t hear
Maybe there’s something wrong with my fears
Or maybe I just don’t wanna hear
All the things that you hold dear

I wish all our hands were petting all our cats
I wish we all were cats
And friendship lay on our furry backs

Don’t ask me if I can’t feel
I've got bruises on my knees from all the times you make me kneel

Don’t ask me if I wanna feel your touch
Baby it’s too much

Don’t ask me if I can’t taste
It’s common sense not to inquire with such haste

Don’t ask me if I want you on my tongue
Honey I might get stung

I wish all our hands were petting all our cats
I wish we all were cats
And friendship lay on our furry backs

Don’t ask me
To stop and smell the roses
Cuz I got me
Stuffy noses

I wish all our hands were petting all our cats
I wish we all were cats
And friendship lay on our furry backs
