  • I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    Here come the teardrops falling again
    Seems like the night has come to an end
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    When you were here I knew what to do
    Now I just waste time thinking of you
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    My heart lost in emotion
    I'm shipwrecked out on the ocean
    I wait hoping you'll come back to me

    Never a single day passes by
    When I don't feel a part of me die
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    I remember the day that I found you
    How I long to still be around you
    So I wait hoping you'll come back to me

    Darling I can't explain it
    I just can't live my life without you
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    If anybody should see her
    Tell her how much, I need her

    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failin' me

    My heart lost in emotion
    I'm shipwrecked out on the ocean
    But I wait hoping you'll come back to me sweet baby

    Seems like the night has come to an end
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me

    I wonder, I wonder, I wonder
    I wonder why I feel like my heart is failing me
