Why do I try?
To hide the things that I do second best
Why do I try?
To care – there’s nothing else - the rest was lost
I’m in it for the love
And nothing more
And no one understands
What I am here for

Why do I have to be the one?
That everyone can ignore
The one that everyone can slam the door on
I’ve never cared this much
About a girl – no one like her
And when I am through
You know what I will do?

(Chorus)
Why do I always have to be the hopeless romantic?
These useless antics – and now I’m frantic for you
You know that I would give my life to make you more than happy?
You know I care

And all this time
I’m waiting for the end when I can talk to you
I know that things
Will not work out
The way I want them too
To leave things now – to leave me wrecked this way
To change your mind
Yet be too kind?
I guess it up to fate
Or maybe I’m too late
