I saw a moonlit scene I never will forget
I stole a kiss at daybreak
I never did regret it
Sometimes I wonder why I even try
So why should I feel blue?

I heard the sound of footsteps swaying in the dark
I poked my head out silent that's how it started
What to my eyes appeared as dust became a vision I don't know

What had finally found me with my back against the wall
Was destiny intruding all around me
And as the day wore on I knew
Another lonely night could never be

If there's is a reason you might try and forget
I'd like to find it cause I like to relive it

Sometimes I wonder why I ever cry
So why should I feel blue?

I was caught drifting disappearing from the land
Whitecaps in profusion all around me
But somehow in our eyes I found the strength to sail upon the raging sea

If there's a reason for the way that life is
I'd like to find it after all who's life is it

Sometimes I wonder why I even try
So why should I feel blue?

What had finally found me with my back against the wall
Was destiny intruding all around me
And as the days wore on I Knew
Another lonely night with you could never be

I saw a moonlit scene I know it was real
All that you can ever do when love is reveal

Sometimes I every try why I even try
So why should I feel blue?

Sometimes I wonder why I ever cry
So why should I feel blue?
