Lyrics:

Why should I play this game of pretend?
Remembering through a secondhand sorrow?
Such a great son and wonderful friend
Oh, don't the tears just pour?

I could curl up and hide in my room
There in my bed still sobbing tomorrow
I could give in to all of the gloom
But tell me, tell me what for?

Why should I have a heavy heart?
Why should I start to break in pieces?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?

Why should I play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light?
I will sing no requiem tonight

I hear your voice, I feel you near
Within these words I finally find you
And now that I know that you are still here
I will sing no requiem

Why should I have a heavy heart?
Why should I say "I'll keep you with me"?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?

Why should I play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light?
I will sing no requiem tonight

So don't tell me that I didn't have it right
Don't tell me that it wasn't black and white
After all you put me through
Don't say it wasn't true
That you were not the monster that I knew

Cause I cannot play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light

I will sing no requiem

I will sing no requiem

I will sing no requiem tonight
