Artist :Andrew Lloyd Webber
Album :Love Never Dies
Title :

Why Does She Love Me


One more

Oh, buddy, don't you think you've had enough?

It's practically morning already

One more, I said

Alright, alright



My shift is over anyway, so let's settle the bill, okay?

Jeez, you're in a bad way ain't you?

Worse than most that end up here

Here's the morning shift, maybe he'll know what to do with you



Yes, what to do with me

That's the question, isn't it?

That's always been the question

Ever since the beginning



She looks for sympathy

I give her sorrow

She asks for honesty

I've none to borrow



She needs my tender kiss

She begs it off me

I give her ugliness

Why does she love me?



She yearns for higher things

Things I can't give her

The rush that music brings

I can't deliver



And even when she sings

And soars above me

I try to clip her wings

Why does she love me?



One more drink, sir

That's what I need

Don't you think, sir?

Leave the hurt behind



Do you hear me?

Another drink



She wants the man I was

Husband and father

At least, she thinks she does

She needn't bother



Beneath this mask I wear

There's nothing of me

Just horror, shame, despair

Why does she love me?



How 'bout you, sir?

Tell me what am I to do, sir?

Leave the hurt behind



Morning, Bernie, coffee please

Hurry up before I freeze

I'll just take it black



Mother said, I'd find you here

Miss Giry

Do you know where you are?

Hell, I imagine



Around here they call it suicide hall

It's where people end up

When they don't know where else to go



The hopeless, the desperate

The good place to step off the side

Of the pier and quietly vanish

You seem to be a regular

Me?

I come here to swim



This town is coarse and cold and mean

It's hard to keep your conscience clean

Faceless in the crowd

Anything's allowed



And so I come at dawn each day

Come to wash it all away

Sink into the sea, blue and cool and kind

Let it set me free, let the past unwind

Leave the hurt behind



You should never have come to America

It's not a place for people like you and Christine

It's too easy to forget who you are and where you belong

That's why Mother says you must leave here

Now, take your wife and the boy and go



Leave?

What about tonight?

The concert, the money?

Am I to just run away from him?

When the sun rises tomorrow

We can all start again, clean



Sail across the sea

Put us out of mind

Close your eyes and flee

Let yourself stay blind

Leave this place behind
