Why do I have to run
From my place by your side
Why do I have to dream
To keep you within my sight

Where do I have to be
To make it worth your while
Where would you be
If only I missed your ride

How would you feel
To be amongst the stars
How would you know
If I left you any scars

Would you stand up
Still hold me by my side
Or would you run ahead
Knowing I can’t follow your tide

Why do I have to smile
Just so you can feel better
Why do I have to leave
Just so you will live forever

And I wish I could learn
To live on without dreaming
To leave the world to burn
Consumed by my own longing.
