How Can I Tell You

author unknown

How can I tell you what a treasure you are
How can I show you when you've strayed so far
From the life of our fathers and the heritage they've earned
How can I show you what you've never learned

How can I tell you what it means to be a Jew
How can I show you when you don't believe it's true
That your life has a purpose higher than you understand
And you're not like other nations and you're in a foreign land

You strive and you struggle to be like those you see
But inside your soul is dying, you're not who you should be
Yes it's hard to be different, to take responsibility
'Cuz a life without courage is without integrity
