Why?

whyThe song about a very complicated relationship. The man loves his girlfriend but unfortunately he is not faithful and keeps cheating on her. Although it’s a very difficult decision for him, he finally decides to leave his girl because in his opinion she deserves someone better and more honest. She shouldn’t cry for him any more. He realizes he’ll never be faithful and he simply doesn’t want to hurt the one he loves.
Some people would probably say that it’s a very bizarre kind of love or it’s not love at all because love should always be connected with faithfulness. In fact life is more complicated and there are also such difficult relationships.
The song was a candidate song for Eurovision Contest in 2011.

I don’t wanna tell you lies
hate tears in your eyes
I don’t need no compromise
and you don’t wanna be deceived
don’t wanna make believe
That’s not what you deserve
Time to change everything
rearrange everything
face the naked truth
stop this game for fools
I don’t wanna be cruel
wanna live to the full
without hurting you
breaking all the rules

Chorus:

Baby why? Say why
why I should lie
and find – find – find
bad alibis
So why? Say why
why you should cry
Oh out of sight
oh out of mind

Hearts don’t beat as one no more
They don’t pound like before
They’re reserved for someone new
Behind the mirror of my mind
a lot of things to hide
true colours of my love
Time to change everything
rearrange everything
face the naked truth
stop this game for fools

Chorus:

Baby why? Say why
why I should lie
and find – find – find
bad alibis
So why? Say why
why you should cry
Oh out of sight
oh out of mind

Time is up
That’s just what you should know
Noone’s won
That’s what I know for sure

Chorus:

Oh baby baby why? Say why
why I should lie
and find – find – find
bad alibis
So why? Say why
why you should cry
Oh out of sight
oh out of mind
Baby why? Say why
why I should lie
and find – find – find
bad alibis
So why? Say why
why you should cry
Oh out of sight
oh out of mind
Baby why?
