Zeg mij waarom
Frans Bauer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ik heb gevochten, maar jij kon dat niet
Jij leefde jouw leven, maar mij zag je niet
Maar toch bleef ik hopen, dacht, eens ziet ze het in
Maar ik ben er nu achter, ik hoef niet te wachten
Want dat heeft geen zin

refr.:
Waarom heb je mij verlaten, waarom ben jij weggegaan
Was er dan niet meer te praten, waarom moest ik jou laten gaan
Alles lijkt nu veranderd, `t huis is leeg zonder jou
Alles is nu zo anders, jou vergeet ik niet gauw
Toch mis ik al jouw warmte, raak er niet aan gewend
Want jij was mijn leven, `k heb alles gegeven, zeg mij waar je bent





refr.
