    Turnin a new leaf
    Some would say
    Can cause grief
    In various ways

    Like x’n draining people from
    Ur circle which u wish to preserve
    With positive ones

    Gurl tell her a thing a 2
    For exposin ur blues
    Shoooooooot
    Thought she was ur friend
    Always knew she was a has been

    Why is it so hard for ur mouth to do
    What ur pen finds so easy to

    Like tell’n someone off
    4 dropping a dime
    Or tell’n em how u feel
    To free ur mind

    Is it a need 2 please
    Others feelings b4 ur own
    To keep the peace

    Why is it so hard for ur mouth to do
    What ur pen finds so easy to

    The words deep inside
    Find their way up North
    Gettin stuck in traffic
    Toward the East side

    Waiting for the green light
    2 make a mad dash
    Into the intersection
    Thru which to be heard

    Why is so hard to make ur mouth do
    What ur pen finds so easy to

    It’s easy to rite words
    But Why
    Why
    Why is it so hard
    For ur mouth to say
    ALL the things that ur heart feels today

    It should be easy as pushin
    A smooth ballpoint pen
    Or the way letters scroll
    Across the computer screen

    Ur lips should move and curve like that of a pen
    Moving up and down with each stroke of a letter ur in
    Or that roll of a scribe
    That on the keyboard
    Takes ur fingers for a ride

    Why is it so hard for ur mouth to do
    What ur pen finds so easy to

    He doesn’t have the flava
    Ur feelin this month
    Just friends
    Nothing More
    Then Tell him and
    Be out the door

    Yeah, u took it there b4
    Maybe to cure
    A long overdue itch
    Or out of curiosity, that
    Definitely killed the cat

    So why
    Why
    Why is it so hard for ur mouth to do
    What ur pen finds so easy to

    Just Do IT!

    Say what U feel!

    Say what U mean!

    But whatever U do

    Mean what U say!

    And start allowin
    Ur mouth to do
    What ur pen finds so easy to
