I Don't Understand Why You Cry

I'm looking in your eyes

At the tears

Streaming down your face

I don't understand though

I'm standing right here

My heart is breaking

As I look at your tears

You can't stop crying

I'm trying to get your attention

But you ignore me

It's like if I didn't exist

As if I were dead

And then I see

I see her walking towards you

I know you and me weren't perfect

We had our ups and downs

But I don't understand

You let her hug you

And you go deeper in her arms

Have I done something wrong?

I try to get your attention

Maybe catch your eye

But you ignore me

I don't understand

Why do you cry?

Why let her touch you

Why do you ignore me?

What have I done?

And then it comes to me

The memories

The pain

The light

It can't be

It must be a dream

It must be a nightmare

It just can't be

I take a look around

Everywhere there's black

An atmosphere of depression

As if someone had died

I don't understand

Tears everywhere

People everywhere


Why are y'all crying?

I don't understand

Why am I being ignored?

I need answers

And then I look

It can't be

My answers

I now know why

Why you cry

Why you let her touch you

Why you ignore me

I understand…

I'm the cause of your tears

It's my fault

It's cause I'm dead

That I've caused you pain
