私は一体なぜ meaning [solved]

Hello, I’m new to Japanese grammar, and am having a difficult time understanding what this is saying. I’m literally reading it as “why the heck I”. Is this saying why the heck would I? Why on earth would I do that? Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

Probably would need more context here. It’s not really a complete thought. What’s happening? Is the person talking to themself or another person?

They’re lyrics from a song, here’s a image of the lyrics that come before it.

What about after it? What’s the song?

So I found the song right after comes this lyric:

誰もが羨む

Which I believe completes the phrase. So probably something like “Why the heck do I envy everyone”?
