Why do I love you, when I know you can't be mine?
I know it always hurts me, but I do it all the time.
Our friendship means a lot to me, I'll never let it go.
I need to tell you how I feel, you have a right to know.
Every time I look at you, I feel like I could die,
Knowing I cannot be with you, holding the hurt inside.
Wishing I could hold you close, as the night goes by,
Alone in my bed without you, water fills my eyes.
I cry myself to sleep at night, wanting to hold you tight.
There's nothing I wouldn't do for you to make it all seem right.
But you don't feel the same way, that way I feel about you,
So I'll hide the hurt inside my heart until the day you do.
But your heart will never be with me, it'll be with that other man,
So even though it hurts inside, I'll do the best I can.
Although we're not together now, for your love I'll pray,
I'll wish and dream and hope that we can be together someday.
