Why Was I Born? Lyrics
Why was I born, why am I livin’? What do I get, what am I givin’? Why do I want a thing I daren’t hope for? What can I hope for? I wish I knewWhy do I try to draw you near me? Why do I do I cry? you never hear meI’m a poor fool, but what can I do? Why was I born to love you? <instrumental-first two lines of second verse>I’m a poor fool, but what can I do? Why was I born to love you? Some other versions may include an intro:Spending these lonesome evenings with nothing to doBut to live in dreams that I make up all by myselfDreaming that you’re beside me, I picture the prettiest storiesOnly to wake up all by myself what is the good of me by myself?
