Why

Lie

To yourself

To myself

To him and to her

Because

You

Don't want to face it

Don't have to face it

Can't get the courage to

Stand up and take it and

Why

Know

Things that you don't need and

Things that you won't use and

Why

Love

If it just goes away

Never to be seen again

Why

Feel

It just freezes you dead

Right in your tracks

Leaving you motionless

Vulnerable to attack

Why

Cry

It won't change a thing

Just go on and live your life and

Why

Die

If no one will notice

If no one will miss you

Why

Care

Why hold on

'Cause in the dark of the night

He'll go and betray you again so

Why

Wonder what thoughts

Run through his hazy mind and

Why

Keep on deceiving and

Give for receiving

He's with no meaning

But for your faded heart you try

And

Why

Why

Why wake in the morning to

Go back to sleep at night

So

Why

What are we doing here

In one and out the other ear

So why

Why beat on a drum

When you can be beating your heart

Into little small shreds

For him to pick up again

But

He

Won't come and somewhere

Deep inside nowhere

You know he won't be there

And you know that you should just

Pick up and leave him

Behind will all seasons

Without all reason

And he can be lonely again

But

You

Walk down the road

One bag in each hand

You want to turn back

But your feet walk forward alone

So

You

Look straight ahead

In hope of another

Your heart tugs behind you

But your mind knows better

'Cause somewhere another

Is waiting for you to

Come

Home

'Cause somewhere another

An angel leaning

On one side that's his

And you control the other

And the one you left behind

Wraps his head around meaningless things

And

You

Find

A mind so vast and it's

Open to you and there

Is no catch

Are you happy at last

You've got this down for real

'Cause you're tried and true

And you know you won't be saying

Any goodbyes so soon

'Cause

You

Found what you wanted

And the one you left behind will too

Because on one side it's raining

At

Your

Back

So

Now

With years left behind you and

More laid in front of your feet

You

Know

You've found the right one and

You've somehow known all along

That one would end

And another begin

And the time that you wasted

Though all left behind

Made your mind see clearer

In

The

Dark

He's an angel leaning

He's an angel needing

He's an angel reaching

Out

For

You
