I never knew the reason why
you had to go and say goodbye.
I never could work out
what it was all about
or why you left me here to cry.

The reason why
you set my world aflame.
The reason why
you turned my head,
stole my heart,
and left me to my shame.

Perhaps a word or two from you
and I will know what made you blue.
Perhaps I’ll understand
why nothing went as planned
or why you had to say we’re through.

The reason why
you set my world aflame.
The reason why
you turned my head,
stole my heart,
and left me to my shame.

Tell me now before the tears begin
why to kiss you became a sin.

The reason why
you set my world aflame.
The reason why
you turned my head,
stole my heart,
and left me to my shame.

I never knew the reason why.
