I Don’t Know Why

( Colin Hay )

I don’t know why
Why you had to leave me
And I don’t know why
You said goodbye
Only if I try
Can I feel the earth beneath me
And as days go by
I come alive
The fall of your hair the feel of your skin and
The smile on your face as you took me in
Now I lie and stare at the sky still I wonder why
I don’t know why
You said that you’d release me
No matter how I try
I still feel you
I watched a falling leaf
Drifting down towards me
Carried by the wind
It disappeared
I sat in disbelief
At what had become of me
And as the day grew dark
I rose to go
As I walked along
I thought I heard you call me
Alas I was alone
So I went home
The fall of your hair the feel of your skin
The smile on your face as you took me in
Now I lie no longer cry but still I wonder why
I don’t know why
You were taken from me
I cannot forget or say goodbye
