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.
