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 Commentthat's possible , but i have another theorie

    i think the you figure, is god. its about the relation between the I figure and god. and she is wondering about why she holds on to the cross (holding on to her religion) because of all the negativity she feels and encounters in her life. she is like questioning the reason to to keep holding on to god. ("The cross I bear But you don't seem to care)


    but i also have a second theory, you could also interpretate this song as extremely anti-religious. like in challeging everyone's faith or at least christianity.
    "Cold is your silence, denying what is real"

    "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 lie"

    you could see these sentences as being directed towards the reader/listener. its like she saying "there is no god, you are just lieing to yourself, believing in what is not real, you just can't face reality because it realy scares you to think there would be no god."

    but i don't think it would be likely that sharon would have that kind of opinion. so i will go with my first theory




    but she is like talking down to god, like in a way of a relationship between two people. she's talking to him like an equal, not a higher being
