Lyrics: V1:
Once I was a young boy waiting anxiously
For daddy to come home to me
And we’d play catch until the sun went down
A few years later my heart skipped a beat
When that blue eyed girl she fell for me
And her kiss turned my whole world upside down
How’d I get from then till now

Chorus:
Why can’t I cry when my heart is hurting
Why can’t I laugh just to ease the burden
Of a life where I don’t feel nothing no more
Why can’t I see the beauty in the sunrise
Why can’t I feel the love in her eyes
When she tells me she couldn’t love me more
When did the colors of my world turn black and white
Why can’t I cry

Verse 2:
Was it the emptiness from when daddy died
Then hearing stories like his on the news at night
And closing my heart so it just can’t hit home
Was it giving in to all demons
Finding love then up and leaving
Even though it meant standing all alone
God help me cause I need to know

Bridge:
God I need an answer
Come save my soul tonight
I wanna feel, I wanna hurt, I wanna bleed,
I wanna cry

God save me
