Can you tell me why I feel like screaming?
Each time these waves of deep emotion
Sweep me up and toss me down
In a sea of passion and devotion?
Can you tell me why I feel like crying?
Each time I turn round in my room
And do not see your smiling face
To lend warmth to this frigid tomb?
Can you tell me why I feel like dreaming?
Of a time when all was right,
When I was a candle in your darkness
And you were an angel in my sight?
Can you tell me why I feel like dying?
When I picture how we used to be,
And know that that is but a ghost,
A ghost forever to haunt me?
Can you tell me? Will you please?
Oh wait, I think I know just why,
You're the reason, you're the answer
Why I want to dream and cry.
Why I want to scream and die.
