Lyrics
Why was I born? Why am I livin’?
What do I get? What am I givin’?
Why do I want a thing I daren’t hope for?
What can I hope for? I wish I knew

Why do I try to draw you near me?
Why do I cry? You never, never, ever hear me
I’m a poor fool but what can I do?
Why was I born to love you?

Why do I try to draw you near me?
And tell me why do I cry? You never, ever, ever hear me
I’m a poor fool but what can I do?
Why was I born? Why was I born?
Why was I born to love you?

Català – Per Què Vaig Néixer?
Per què vaig néixer? Per què estic vivint?
Què obtinc? Què estic donant?
Per què vull una cosa que no goso esperar?
Què puc esperar? M’agradaria saber-ho

Per què intento que t’acostis a mi?
Per què ploro? Mai, mai, mai m’escoltes
Sóc una pobre ximple, però què hi puc fer?
Per què vaig néixer per estimar-te?

Per què intento que t’acostis a mi?
I digue’m per què ploro? Mai, mai, mai m’escoltes
Sóc una pobre ximple, però què hi puc fer?
Per què vaig néixer? Per què vaig néixer?
Per què vaig néixer per estimar-te?
