There's a time I felt I was blessed To be loved by you
But those blessings turn to regret from all the things you put me through
I remember at night you used to hold me till the sun rose the next day
Now you sleep and just turn away while my heart is on display

And I say...

[Chorus]
Why should I cry one more night?
Why should I smile when it hurts inside?
Why does my heart say, get up and walk away
Why do I stay?
Why, why, why

[Repeat]

There's a reason why I cry every day
There's a reason why things don't go your way
There's a reason why I kneel down in pray
There's a reason why I'm still around today
Can't you see that I'm hurtin' eternally?
I need affection and good Lord therapy
I need you know as an urgent delivery
TO GET RID OF THE PAIN INSIDE OF ME

[Chorus 2x]

Why should I put up lies?
Am I afraid to say goodbye?
I've loved you so, baby I can't deny
But now it's time to dry my eyes
It's Hard to think of what was changed when I feel like it was all in vain
Can't be right and feel this wrong
This heart of mine is just...

[Chorus 3x]
