I am bound by my pain Tears fall down like the rain Can't you see it's a part of me? My whole life is incomplete All alone I am bound by my pain Tears fall down like the rain Can't you see it's a part of me? My whole life is incomplete Am I wasting all my time Believing someone is waiting for me Is it a dream or lie? Sometimes life just passes by Oh why?
I am bound by my pain Tears fall down like the rain Can't you see it's a part of me? My whole life is incomplete All alone... With no hope... I cry out... Make it all disappear I am bound by my pain Tears fall down like the rain Can't you see it's a part of me? My whole life is incomplete All alone in the night With no hope left in sight. I cry out, can you hear? Make it all disappear Am I wasting all my time Believing someone is waiting for me Is it a dream or lie? Sometimes life just passes by Oh why?
