How

How

Song Notes
“How” is a song sort of about being under a microscope, and also the people holding the microscope. About working so hard for something, letting people examine me close up to find they’re more interested in their own preconceptions than in finding out who I really am. The song was originally used in the movie “Twister.”

Lyrics
I didn’t come this far for you to make this hard for me.
and now you want to ask me “how”?
It’s like – how does your heart beat, and why do you breathe?
How does your heart beat, and why do you breathe?

Why did you come here?
You weren’t invited.
You were on the outside – Stay on the outside.
And now you want to ask me “why”?
It’s like – why does your heart beat, and how do you cry?
How does your heart beat?

And there are some things that I like to figure out.
There are some things that I can do without –
like you, and your letters that go on forever,
And you, and the people that were never friends.

With all the things that you could be,
you never could learn how to be me.
And now you want to ask me “how”?.
It’s like – how does your heart beat, and why do you breathe?
How does your heart beat, and why do you breathe?
