Oh, why, why

Scarlet’s so far away
Why’d you leave, so cold last night
Glass of water, half is dry
And why
Oh, why, why

We are treading water as it all shuts down
When you know nothing’s free and you forget the sound
When he cries for you, thinks it’s through
And the show, they put on
All-a-smile, there you go
Screaming why
Oh, why, why

Paper truths, hard to take
When you’re lovely, then you’re happy
When you’re angry, you’re just crazy
But why
Oh, why, why

We are breaking curfew, and it’s our own rules
Confine the mind so silently, erase all that you drew
All he wrote for you, faded blue
Ricochet, back-and-forth
Again you cry, nothing more
So why
Oh, why, why

It’s late tonight, and you’re all too quiet
Break the door and I’d never know it’s you
When the stakes are high, so pressed for time
Will it ever end, just the two

You too…

We are treading water as it all shuts down
When you know nothing’s free and you forget the sound
When he cries for you, thinks it’s through
And the show, they put on
All-a-smile, there you go
Screaming why
Oh, why, why
