Some other versions of "Why Was I Born"

Why was I born tell me why I am living
What do I give or what am I'm giving
What do I want anything I can not hope for
What can I hope for I wish I knew

Why do I try to draw you near me
Honey tell me why do I cry
'Cause you're never gonna hear me
I'm a poor fool
But what can I do, I do
Why was I born to love you
