Nothing's ever changed, you still turn away
You've washed your hands, you've made that all too clear
You just keep on living this lie

You refuse to see, you're denying me
The cross I bear but you don't seem to care
Even Judas knew he had lied

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why
I'm still calling your name my dear

I'm sorry if you can't stand the naked truth
All you see is how you want it to be
So you keep on living your life

Release me from this cross after all these years
Oh call my name and help me with this weight
Even though it comes far too late

I keep wondering why
I'm still calling your name through my tears

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why I'm still calling your name
And I wonder, oh I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call

Why? Why?

Why have you waited to embrace me my dear?
Cold is your silence, denying what is real
I'm still wondering why I'm still calling your name
And I wonder, oh I wonder

In my heart I still hope you will open the door
You can purify it all, answer my call

    General CommentA few small corrections:
    the first line is: Nothing’s ever changed, you still turn away
    And: 'If my heart is too hold/cold, can we open the door? Can we ever find it all and save my heart?' should be "In my heart I still hope you will open the door, You can purify it all, answer my call"
    This is according to the WT official site.

    This is probably the most emotional song on the album, or perhaps any WT song. Bitterness, anger, betrayal, love, dispair. Not sure what it really means, she has had a tramatic experience on her life that her mate either denies altogether, or blames on her, even though perhaps he might be to blame? Regardless he isn't giving her the love and comfort she needs which is causing her even more pain. (Maybe a rape victim, who's mate now has trouble being intimate her; I've heard of that happening)
    Or she has done something she regrets and has carried the guilt for a long time, but he won't forgive her even though they've stayed together?
    The "ah, ah, ah, ahhhh" kind of creeped me out and annoyed me at first, I almost didn't give this song a chance, but I did and it grew on me quickly.
