"WHY?"

WHY?

Why do I hurt so bad right now?
I thought love was supposed to make you happy.
Then why am I crying?

You say you love me.
So why are you leaving?

How many times can my heart be broken...
before I build a wall around it,
so strong no one can get through?

WHY?

Why do people say "I love you",
and then walk away?

Before I met you,
I'd been hurt so many times.
I was protective of my heart.

But you taught me to love again...
to live again.
...now I want to die.

For you have taken my love.
You were my life,
You were my sunshine.
Now you bring me rain.

It's cold, it's dark,
and I'm so alone...
alone without you.
