Lyrics
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

[Chorus]
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
