"Why! ..." as written by and Michael Cretu....
I was childish and unfair
To you, my only friend
I regret, but now it's too late
I can't show you any more
The things I've learned from you
'Cause life just took you away
I'm asking why
I'm asking why
Nobody gives an answer
I'm just asking why
But someday we'll meet again
And I'll ask you
I'll ask you why
Why it has to be like this
I'm asking you why
Please give me an answer
Many years and stupid fights
Till we accept to see
How it was and it'll always be
Why it has to be like this
Why we don't realize
Why we're too blind to see the one
Who's always on our side
I'm asking why
I'm asking why
Nobody gives an answer
I'm just asking why
Just tell me why Why it has to be like this
That the good ones disappear
I'm asking you why
I'm asking why
I'm asking why
Nobody gives an answer
I'm just asking why
I'm asking why

    General CommentI guess this song is about a protagonist's friend who has passed away. But might also have been a lover. He has not realised until now that he has lost a very good friend, maybe the only true friend he has ever had. It also seems to me that he regrets having not appreciated this friendship during his friend was alive. He's sad, has a guilty conscious and feels alone 'Nobody gives an answer'...

    I also feel that the protagonist is fed up with life in general 'How it was and it'll always be
    Why it has to be like this'. There is no hope for him left and he just asks 'why' in a hopeless attempt to understand life and death which life always brings about in its end.
