What I have to offer you, it can't be very good.
I have laid out all my troubles, behind them I stood.
And in this very place where hard love hurts so good,
I have told you everything and been misunderstood
Why? Why?

So I withdraw my offer and I slide back my hand.
I'm sorry I embarrassed you, that wasn't my plan.
But in your glowing home I found a place to land
and I now I see to stay here was more than you could stand.
Why? Why?

So now I think I understand the reason for the phone:
To feel through electricity how not to be alone.
And in the dark, after the call, when really no one's here at all,
I find myself reaching out. For what?
Why? Why?
