WHY DOES IT HAPPEN
WHEN WE DO THE THINGS WE USED TO DO?
WHY DOES IT HAPPEN
WHEN WE HERE THE SONGS WE'D LISTEN TO?
WHY DOES IT HAPPEN
WHEN I HOLD YOU SO CLOSE?
WHY OH WHY DO YOU CRY?

WHY DO YOU TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE HAPPY?
WHEN IN YOUR EYES I CAN SEE MISERY
WHY OH WHY IT CAN'T HIDE
WHY OH WHY DO YOU CRY?

WHY CAN'T LIFE
BE AS SWEET AS IT USED TO BE?
WHY CAN'T TIME
OPEN YOUR EYES SO YOU CAN SEE?
BABY IT'S SAD
CAUSE I KNOW YOU LIVE A LIE
WHY OH WHY DO YOU CRY?

WHY DO YOU LIVE THIS LIFE THAT'S KEPT IN MISERY?
WHY DON'T YOU SET YOURSELF FREE?
WHY OH WHY
CAN'T YOU SEE YOUR SPIRIT DIE?
WHY OH WHY
DO YOU CRY?
Description
Short Song Description:
A person runs into an old flame and finds out there are still feelings there.
Long Song Description:
Did you ever run into an old flame and find out that the person still had feelings for you. Someone who you thought could care less about you anymore. I think it probably happens to all of us some time in our lives.
Story Behind the Song:
I wrote this while thinking about an old relationship.
