Colin Hay — I Don't Know Why lyrics

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

And 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
And 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
