Why?

I don't know why you did this
Thought things were going fine
That day, you said you loved me
Said you were glad that you were mine
And since that day you left me
I've been waiting for you to come home
You were my whole heart, baby
But now I'm all alone

Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
I gave you everything that you wanted
I gave you the best years of my life
Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
You didn't even give me a reason
So all I wanna know is why?

We used to sit together
Looking up at the stars
Used to think we were there
Our love had reached somewhere afar
Afar must not mean the same
To you as it meant to me
You were my high point, darlin'
But now I'm just empty

Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
I gave you everything that you wanted
I gave you the best years of my life
Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
You didn't even give me a reason
So all I wanna know is why?

Don't care why you left me
I just wish that you would come back
I know that it just won't be
And you've left me with this heart attack
I had once believed that
I had found the one I'd always love
Damnit, you were my whole life
I've lost everything that I'd dreamed of

Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
I gave you everything that you wanted
I gave you the best years of my life
Why did you have to leave?
Why did you have to say goodbye?
You didn't even give me a reason
So all I wanna know is why?
