I don’t know why
We still live together
We’re so far apart
So much of the time
I don’t know why
This beautiful weather
Is breaking my spirit
And tearing my mind all apart

Are you so lonely
Are you so sad
Have you lost your purpose
The faith that you had
If life is a question
I don’t understand
If time is the reason
Then nobody can

In my heart it is just an illusion
It’s not even real
Much more than you think
It’s much more than you feel

My ears are still ringing
There’s nothing to say
Why look to the ocean
To wash me away
There goes my best friend
There goes my last dime
If love is the answer
I’m wasting my time

In my heart it is just an illusion
It’s not even real
Much more than you think
It’s much more than you feel
Do you feel
Is this real
How I feel
In my heart
