Tell Me Why

This song is by Within Temptation and appears on the album Hydra (2014).

I've been losin' myself in anger
So much broken by the rage
Nothin' could take my mind off
How to make them pay
Killin' myself for nothin'
And the pain won't go away
Losin' myself to madness
And the game's been played

If I could turn
The hands of time I would
But here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it's all gone?
I'm livin' with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still tryin' to hold on?
I've got to tear it down to let it go

I'm too tired to keep on tryin'
But I'm spellbound till the end
Knowin' that there's no closure
For my wars inside
I've buried the good and evil
Only memories left behind
I am the one still standin'
I will live to tell

If I could turn
The hands of time I would
But here I am
Here I am!

Tell me why am I still here when it's all gone?
I'm livin' with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still tryin' to hold on?
I've got to tear it down to let it go

Tell me why I'm wastin' away
(Wastin' away)
Tell me how to break my own chains
(Break my own chains)
'Cause I'm losin' after all
How can I escape this grim fate?
(Escape this grim fate)
Tell me how to face one more day
(Face one more day)
'Cause I'm wastin' away

It's all gone silent
I'm searchin' for fire
Nothin' to fight for alone

Tell me why am I still here when it's all gone?
I'm livin' with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still here when it's all gone?
I'm livin' with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why am I still tryin' to hold on?
I've got to tear it down to let it go
