I close my eyes
I see you and the lights
I opened them to see nothing but lies
TELL ME!! Tell me at least just once
Why? Why only to you all this doesn’t make any sense.
I hope, I wish, I pray
That someday I may
Get this strength, the power
To rise up, to stand high even though
You say it’s all over.
How come you don’t understand me?
The way I smile, you think you know me!!
Have you got any idea of the pain inside me?
The anger, the guilt, the unconditional love…
It’s killing me purely and entirely.
Please, just once tell me how!!
How could you do this to me?
Despite the feeling I still hold for you!!
I don’t know what to do, don’t what to feel…
Just confused, depressed, and numb.
You saw me, you found me
You loved me, you had me
But later everything changed
You broke me, you tore my heart apart
Your love for me started fading away.
I still miss you, but I don’t say it anymore
Your love once touched me to the core
I never knew how I could ever live without you
I hide my pain with a smile
Even though happiness is away by a mile.
