Why can't I have someone?
To hold me close all through the night,
And kiss me in the pale moonlight.
To love me until life is done,
Why can't I have someone?

Why can't I be your lover?
I dream of kissing you but fear,
To lose you; the one that I hold dear.
I only want you, not any other,
Why can't I be your lover?

Why can't I cherish my life?
God's gift should be worth so much more,
But there's nothing left here that's worth living for.
I'd rather feel the cold blade of a knife,
Why can't I cherish my life?
