Lonely am I
Only my thoughts crowd the room
Why can't I cry?

Time passes me by
The cold touch of dawn tells me so
Still, I can' t cry

You promised to love me and vowed
You'd never leave me alone with a broken heart
You treated along like a game tortured my mind
With the pain that someday you'd go

Flames in the fire
Can't warm the chill of my room
Why can't I cry?

Feel I want to die
Just how much more can I take
If I can't cry?

You promised to love me and vowed
You'd never leave me alone with a broken heart
You treated along like a game tortured my mind
With the pain that someday you'd go

I multiply all of the hours you've been gone
Still, I can't cry
Lonely am I
Why can't I cry?
