If Do

if my tears don't fall
do they make a sound
if no one's there to catch them
do they come at all

if i can't bring myself to laugh aloud
do i smile through my eyes
if i don't want to forget
do i have to remember it all

if you can't tell me what to feel
do i have the power to tell myself
if i can't stop what's inside of me
do i have to let it out
