Why do I do anything?
What is the cause?
I don't know.
I can't tell you.
Why did I do this?
Why did I break your heart?
I don't know.
I can't tell myself.

A endless spiral of emotions
finally collapses into still confusion.
A burning fire of desperation
finally fades to silent despair.

When things went so well
Why did I fail?
I don't know. 
I can't tell you.
When things were right
Why did they turn wrong?
I don't know.
I can't tell myself.

Looking back at my former mistakes,
I see all the times that I failed you.
If only I had realized sooner and changed,
Would you have forgiven me?

What was the cause of my actions?
In my delusion, did I intend to be cruel?
I don't know.
I can't tell you.
In my new apathy came coldness.
Has my former care became a tedious game?
I don't know.
I can't tell myself.

Please don't go.
I can't hold on.
I'm too stupid to do anything.

Why am I afraid?
To call you back?
I don't know.
I can't tell you.
Why can't I change now?
When I now have a chance?
I don't know.
I can't tell myself.
