Why YouWhy You
Itís 3 am and here you are knocking at my door
And here I am running to answer it
Like I donít know whatís in store
But its business as usual you say,
Is that what keeps you away?
When I saw you at the castle I mistook you for the king
Call it lying by omission but you didnít say a thing
And all I can say now, at this hour is
Of all the men I couldíve loved
Of all the men I could have loved, why you?
Well, it was way back then another lifetime ago
I had so many choices so many directions to go
Oh and your spirit shone so bright like a torch in my night
A free spirit for everyone and no one at the same time
Somewhere on the way I thought I could make that spirit mine
And Iím half asleep now interpreting a dream
Are we something that almost is, or nothing that only seems?
Promises climb and glow like stardust casting shadows on the desert floor
Youíre an oasis in the distance, receding as I touch the shore
Cause itís what you say, not what you do
And even though I hear the truth
I still canít believe you
