I said, "Everybody's headed out to L.A. but I hate to see you suffer"
"You love New York in the summer"
So let's gather up the pieces of this broken
Wilted thing
It's worth the struggle
I just ache to touch you

I've always wanted you too close

Why
Why
Why is it hard to sleep without you
I don't mind if you build your dreams around it
We won't survive on this borrowed time
I don't know why you'd wanna try
I said, "Why"
"Why"
"Why do we waste time on these white lies"

I catch a glimpse of fingernails with cracked pink polish
Tapping out a rhythm
I'm just wondering what you're thinking
There's a faded photograph of someone else you used to love
Can't stop from wishing that you'd just forget him

I've always wanted you too close

Why
Why
Why is it hard to sleep without you
I don't mind if you build your dreams around it
We won't survive on this borrowed time
I don't know why you'd wanna try
I said, "Why"
"Why"
"Why do we waste time on these white lies"

I remember the night
The hotel bed
You cried out loud
You were still in love with me
Through time and space
Oh
Everything
You've wasted all your precious dreams and faith it seems
Needless crying

Why
Why
Why is it hard to sleep without you
I don't mind if you build your dreams around it
We won't survive on this borrowed time
I don't know why you'd wanna try
And I said, "Why"
"Why"
"Why do we waste time on these white lies"
