Reasons Why

When I cry, I fake a smile and tell a lie
When I sleep, I have nightmares constantly
When I close my eyes all I see are the memories
They tear me apart inside knowing that I
Am not the one that you want

You were the reason why I woke up in the morning
The reason why I was always day dreaming
Your name brought a smile to my face
Your laugh made my heart run a race
There are too many reasons to say
But you don't seem to care anyway

When it rains, I know it can't wash away my pain
When it hurts, everything I do makes it worse
When I open my eyes you are all I see
It tears me apart inside knowing that I
Can't be her, the one you want

You were the reason why I acted differently 
The reason why I wanted you to notice me
Your eyes have me loosing my breath
Your voice makes feel like nothing is left
There are too many reasons for me to name
But you don't seem to feel the same

I wasted all this time chasing after you
Loosing my mind and forgetting what I do
I walk towards you to tell you the reasons why
But I stop and say it's not worth a try

When I see her, I know it's for sure
You will never love me the way I love you

You were the reason why I woke up in the morning
The reason why I was always day dreaming
Your name brought a smile to my face
Your laugh made my heart run a race

You were the reason why I acted differently 
The reason why I wanted you to notice me
Your eyes have me loosing my breath
Your voice makes me feel like nothing is left

There are too many reasons but I know one is true
I will never love anyone else like the way I love you

This was really sweet but it was also full of longing. Your rhythm is really nice!
