I wish I could understand why...
It would help me move on you know
Get over, all those things...
My cravings 
for the love that you showed me
for the wings that you gave me…

Were you playing and just tired of the game?
Did I hurt you, without knowing?
Did I miss the tears when they came?

Don't know what's up with you.
Cause now you won't even talk to me
So I can't even figure out
if I lost something real.

Did I ever have you?
Are you gone away now...?
Please tell me – just explain
Was it me - was it you 
that first brought in the pain
and how can we -  [can we?]
ever see 
the beauty in WE again?
I want you with me ... again.
I need you 
.. again.
