A Reason Why

Why do these eyes of mine cry?
There has to be a reason why.

In the beginning there was only blue skies,
But they've turned grey and the sky cries.

Why could I never look you in the eye?
There has to be a reason why.

They tell me I'm crazy to even try,
They say it will always be goodbye.

Why do I fall to pieces when you walk by?
There has to be a reason why.

Straight to you I yearn to fly,
And in your arms dance in the sky.

Why do I feel the need to try?
There has to be a reason why.

For you I refused to comply,
To those who dared to deny.

Why did I never see the lies?
There has to be a reason why.

I have no more tears left in me to cry,
At times I just wish I could die.

Why when I breathe do I only sigh?
There has to be a reason why.

It felt like a grave when you never said goodbye,
After everything, you turn away when I cry.

Why did you bring me blue skies?
There has to be a reason why.

When we first met I was so shy,
But now I long only to look into your eyes.

Why does it hurt when my love you deny?
There has to be a reason why.

I never thought you'd make me cry,
They say it's time to say goodbye.
