why should i cry lyrics – heather headley

“why should i cry”

there’s a time i felt i was blessed to be loved by you
but those blessings turn to regret from all the things you put me through
i remember at night you used to hold me till the sun rose the next day
now you sleep and just turn away while my heart is on display

and i say…

[chorus]
why should i cry one more night?
why should i smile when it hurts inside?
why does my heart say, get up and walk away
why do i stay?
why, why, why

[repeat]

there’s a reason why i cry every day
there’s a reason why things don’t go your way
there’s a reason why i kneel down in pray
there’s a reason why i’m still around today
can’t you see that i’m hurtin’ eternally?
i need affection and good lord therapy
i need you know as an urgent delivery
to get rid of the pain inside of me

[chorus 2x]

why should i put up lies?
am i afraid to say goodbye?
i’ve loved you so, baby i can’t deny
but now it’s time to dry my eyes
it’s hard to think of what was changed when i feel like it was all in vain
can’t be right and feel this wrong
this heart of mine is just…

[chorus 3x]
