Why Can't It Be Me?

He crossed oceans of time
to find...
she can't place the voice that seems
from a dream.
Some do get their dreams.

Why can't it be me? Why can't it be me? Why can't it be?

Bursting ripe, I've too much life
to hold inside.
Hallowed beast is drawn to me
to feed, then leave.
People always leave. (Why can't they take me?)

Why can't it be me? Why can't it be me? Why can't it be?

Why,why?Why,why?Why,why?
Why,why?Why,why?Why,why?
Why,why?Why,why?Why?

He sees (thru 4 centuries)
her ghostly sheen.
Why can't he see me? (And all i can be?)
Why?Why?

Why can't it be me? Why can't it be me?
