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 CommentI agree. I don't think this song is religious. Sharon is just saying that even Judas knew he lied and what he was doing was wrong. So if he can figure that out, why can't you.

    Although this may seem stupid. I think this song is about an orphaned girl who's foster mother treats her like an outcast. Constantly trying to make her into her other daughters who believe that her daughters are " Perfect". So the orphan tries to explain the problem her mom is making, but the mom believes that the orphan is wrong and tells her that she's not true. But deep down the mom knows that she's wrong. But can't help herself. And all the orphan wants, is to be loved.
