Oh Why...?

Oh Why...?

A Poem by Ethale Captor
"

A song I wrote for my Music class and was requested to upload.

"
- 1st Verse -
Unloved, my tears splatter
On the mirror, then it shatters
Across time, the pieces scatter
Like us, and everything that matters

Oh why, why did you have to go?
Why did you have to leave me alone?
Oh why, why did you have to say
I would be better off without you anyway?

- Chorus -
Oh why, why did I have to love you?
Oh why couldn't you have stayed?
Oh why, why didn't you listen to me?
Why couldn't you have been the hero of yesterday...?

- 2nd Verse -
Here I lay, crying out my eyes
My every dream shattered by lies
Trying to sleep, singing delusional lullabies
Losing count of your deathly alibis

Oh why, why did you have to be
The only one perfect for me?
Oh why, why didn't you say
Why didn't you promise to come back some day?

- Chorus -
Oh why, why did I have to love you?
Oh why couldn't you have stayed?
Oh why, why didn't you listen to me?
Why couldn't you have been the hero of yesterday...?

- Bridge -

Over this fresh turned soil I stand
Wishing you could still hold my hand
Standing on the rain wondering why
Of all, you were the one to die

With God as my witness and the stars above
I am still always here, my love
It's alright, I'm fine, I'll find a way
Don't worry, don't cry, we'll meet again some day

- Chorus - 

Oh why, why did I have to love you?
Oh why couldn't you have stayed?
Oh why, why didn't you listen to me?
Why couldn't you have been the hero of yesterday...?

Oh why, why did I have to love you?
Oh why couldn't you just say:
"Oh why, why did I have to love you?"
Even so, I still see you as the hero of yesterday...

I got to the chorus and, "yes!" The chorus was my favorite part. I'm glad you made the emotions conflicted instead of only leaning one way.

Thank you.
Nicely done Ethale. Actually it looks professionally done. I've done to pieces of lyrics but I've never taken music class and I can see the difference in our work,hahaha. Perhaps it's because my lyrics are death metal lyrics and when it comes to those types of lyrics it's pretty much just thrown out there. That's what I really want to do is write lyrics I love music. I'm working on a piece of lyrics now. I seem to be stuck.
