"Why Not Me?" as written by David Quinones, Evan Bogart, Erika Nuri, Enrique Iglesias and Nadir Khayat....
Escaping nights without you with shadows on the wall
My mind is running wild tryin' hard not to fall
You told me that you love me but say I'm just a friend
My heart is broken up into pieces
'Cause I know I'll never free my soul
It's trapped between true love and being alone
When my eyes are closed the greatest story told
I woke and my dreams are shattered here on the floor

Why oh why tell me why not me
Why oh why we were meant to be
Baby I know I could be all you need
Why oh why oh why

I wanna love you
If you only knew how much I love you
So why not me

The day after tomorrow I'll still be around
To catch you when you fall and ever let you down
You say that we're forever our love will never end
I've tried to come up but it's drowning me to know
You'll never feel my soul

It's trapped between true love and being alone
When my eyes are closed the greatest story told
I woke and my dreams are shattered here on the floor

Tell me baby

Why oh why tell me why not me
Why oh why we were meant to be
Baby I know I could be all you need
Why oh why oh why

I wanna love you
If you only knew how much I love you
So why not me

You won't ever know
How far we can go
You won't ever know
How far we can go (go)

Why oh why tell me why not me
Why oh why we were meant to be
Baby I know I could be all you need
Why oh why oh why

Why oh why tell me why not me
Why oh why we were meant to be
Baby I know I could be all you need
Why oh why oh why

I wanna love you
If you only knew how much I love you
So why not me

(why not me, why not me)

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song, and to me its about wanting someone you just can't or never will have.

    This is song really does get to me, and its like exactly how i feel about a certain person.

    "When my eyes are closed
    The greatest story told
    Awoke, and my dreams are shattered here on the floor"

    To me this is like when I dream about what it could be like, looking back on a past memory when I was happy with her, or a recent memory of us together yet only to wake and the relise its never gonna be. Why not me? :(
