Why Are You Afraid of Me (Baby)

I brought you 50 red balloons right before Prom
It was the the craziest thing I’ve done for anyone
I turned up one day to ask you to go on a walk
I think that’s why you decided you were done

Why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Why are you afraid of me
Of me
Of me
Of me
Baby

I saw you between classes, and you looked away
Then turned around and headed down the hall
Babe I had so many things I needed to say
And you also didn’t answer all my phone calls

Why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Why are you afraid of me
Of me
Of me
Of me
Baby

Was it something I did
Was it something I said
Or was it something I didn’t do
Girl, I really wish I knew

Was there something I could have said
Was there something I could have tried
Or were you just passing time
And I didn’t commit a crime, so

Why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Why are you afraid of me
Of me
Of me
Of me
Baby

Baby, ooooooooooooh
Baby, ooooooooooooh
Baby, ooooooooooooh
Baby
