LYRICS Nobody knows the way I´m feelin´. I try to scream, instead I smile. The world is strange, I must be dreamin´. How can I stop this just for a while? The morning rain will soon be fallin´. But I don´t care, cause I´ve already cried. Can´t see the meaning of this, but one thing´s certain: I´m afraid I´m losin´ my mind.
Somebody else will be her boyfriend. Some body else will have her heart. But still I love her so. How could I let her go? I was foolin´myself.
The sky is blue and birds are singin´. The sun does shine, and kids are playing games. What have I done? What was I thinkin´? The only thing to do, is hide in shame.
