Somebody tell me why
I don't really want to die
Feelings in my head
When I wake up dead
Make me really want to cry

Somebody help me out
I don't want to scream or shout
The pain I feel inside
On the day I thought I
Really tends to freak me out

Can I stay awake with you
??? and bake with you
Lay my head down at your shoe
And fly my tears away
To come another day

Somebody tell me why
I don't really want to die
Get myself some sleep
Dinner I can eat
Never hear ...

Somebody tell me how
I can milk a brand new cow
Feelings in my head
When I wake up dead
Make me really want to cry

Can I stay awake with you
??? and bake with you
Lay my head down at your shoe
And fly my tears away
To come another day

Somebody tell me why
I don't really want to die
Feelings in my head
When I wake up dead
Make me really want to cry

Somebody help me out
I don't want to scream and shout
The pain I feel inside
On the day I die
Really tends to freak me out

Can I stay awake with you
??? and bake with you
Lay my head down at your shoe
And fly my tears away
To come another day

Somebody tell me why
Somebody tell me why
