Don't Know Why - Carlos Othon - Original

I was born today and I donâ??t know why
I see the light and I donâ??t know why
My heart is soft and I donâ??t know why
My life is dear and I do not know why

I felt the pain and I donâ??t know why
I broke my heart and I donâ??t know why
The tears roll down and I donâ??t know why
My life is dear and I do not know why

Itâ??s the question that haunts me so
Itâ??s the answer that never shows
Itâ??s the question that I will ask
Till my heart will beat no more

Yet, I will accept the words from your mouth
Turning my ear to your wisdom
I will live life as you command
So that one day I will understand

And I will call out for your insight
And I will cry aloud to understand
I will seek it as if it where silver or gold
To fear you Lord and gain wisdom

I caused you shame, but you forgave me
I died inside but you made me new
I was lost but you lead me home
You made me yours and I do not know why
