Why? by Martie Hevia

Closing my eyes…
Walking away.
(Back Vocals: Just walk away)
I whisper, “Good-bye.”
There isn’t more to say…
(Back Vocals: What can I say?)
Except to ask you:
“Why?”
~
Why grab me, hold me,
and stare deeply into my eyes?
(Back Vocals: Why?)
Why plead with me
to give you just a little more time?
(Back Vocals: Just tell me why.)
Why crash into me
if you don’t want to hurt me?
(Back Vocals: Oh, why?)
Why take me, steal me, hide me
if you don’t want to keep me?
So can you answer for me:
“Why?”
(Back Vocals: Why)
~
Why take my ring
and everything I am?
(Back Vocals: Why?)
Why pretend to be, in front of me,
a different kind of man?
(Back Vocals: Just tell me why.)
Why pursue me so charmingly
only to push me away?
(Back Vocals: Why?)
Why hide from me and not the world
your other victim, the other girl?
So can you answer for me:
“Why?”
~
[Strum]
I’m walking away
(Back Vocals: Just walk away)
Closing my eyes
There isn’t more to say…
Except perhaps good-bye
I guess it doesn’t matter… “why”
