Just Tell Me Why

Why do I try?
To make things work
When they're out of my hands
Why do I hurt?

Why do I cry?
When I have no more tears...
When I thought I was happy
Why do I fear?

Why do you lie?
When I expect so much more
But I know the real you...
So what do I hope for?

Why do I think?
About you still...
Just a faceless mask
Or is it real?

Why do I want?
What I cannot have...
What I can only look at
Why can't it last?

Why do I feel?
Emotions I try to forget
No nicotine patch for this...
Why can't I quit?

Why do you stay?
You know it kills me
It's an unhealthy addiction
Why can't I cure me?
