Your letter came this very day and it wiped all my dreams away
I've read it o'er a thousand times it's left me with a worried mind
I wonder why you said goodbye and did you mean to make me cry
I guess until the day I die that I will still be wondering why
[ steel ]
I hope and pray before my time that you'll come back and say you're mine
Bring back the love you took away and mend the heart you broke today
I wonder why you said goodbye...
