Why do I push you away
When all I want is to hold you near
Why do I act so brave
When I am filled with an unknown fear

Why do I cause so much hurt
With everything I say or do
When all I really want
Is to tell you how much I love you

Why do I sleepwalk
As if my life is just a dream
When in my heart I know
That things are as they seem

Why do I go on pretending
That it’s all just a big joke
When all my hopes and dreams
Are blowing away in smoke

Why do I behave
Like none of this matters
When the fabric I want to weave
Is torn and lies in tatters

Why do I laugh out loud
When all I want to do is cry
Why do I live under this shroud
When all I need to do is just ask why
