Why

Album: Bass Generation (2009)
  • Why didn't we just try
    To hold on one more time

    You maybe think that I don't care
    But the tears are falling down
    I can hardly breathe in this rain of sorrow

    Remember we walked the beach at night
    Then we made love in the moon light
    And you looked into my eyes

    Why didn't we just try
    To hold on one more time
    Why, was it all a lie
    Let's try it on one more time

    Life goes on and time goes by
    But every day I wonder why
    Was it meant to be this way
    Is this how you want it

    I might not be the perfect guy
    But baby, I'm worth one more try
    Don't let me wait another day

    Why didn't we just try
    To hold on one more time
    Why, was it all a lie
    Let's try it on one more time Writer/s: JONAS ERIK ALTBERG
