When you hold my hands
You make me fearless
When you talk to me
Comfort is mine
My whole world revolves round you
Everything in my life dances to your melodious tune

Why?
Why would you make me fall in your love
When you are not staying for so long?
Why do you let me build my world round you
Only for you to crush it—
Why?

In my fantasy every little thing is love
In my ecstasy I never worry about life
Passion makes my dream bigger
Makes me fearless
Exploring your world of beauty
Makes eternity just like a day

Why?
Why would you make me fall in your love
When you are not staying for so long?
Why do you let me build my world round you
Only for you to crush it—
Why?

Long days turn short
The stressful times suddenly become strong
Just because your love is comforting me
The gracious blue eyes melting my soul
In your sight I want to spend forever

Why?
Why would you make me fall in your love
When you are not staying for so long?
Why do you let me build my world round you
Only for you to crush it—
Why?

Your bosom is the pleasure of life
Your smile is the savor of my heart
Your words are fragrances to my soul
Your touch is the healing balm on my wound
Your quietness is the mystery I want to unfold

But why?
Why would you make me fall in your love
When you are not staying for so long?
Why do you let me build my world round you
Only for you to crush it—
Why?

The days are getting longer
The moments becoming memories
The experience just bitter-sweet
Best friends becoming strangers
And life is becoming lonely

Why, then?
Why would you make me fall in your love
When you are not staying for so long?
Why do you let me build my world round you
Only for you to crush it—
Why?
