Oh, why? I just wanted to lay down and die
You don't know the pain that I feel inside
Could this be a dream or is it real tonight?
Tell me why, oh why?

It hurts inside for real, a lie
Can you tell me what went wrong with our love?
We laughed, we cried, through battles, we survived
Our love was sure as the stars above
Oh, tell me why

Oh, why? I just wanted to lay down and die
You don't know the pain that I feel inside
Could this be a dream or is it real tonight?
Tell me why, oh why?

You said we'd be together forever
They say true love never dies
You said that I was all you needed
Why did we have to say goodbye

The situation is killing me
But you had to step out on me
With another man, I don't understand
I saw you holding his hand

Oh, why? I just wanted to lay down and die
You don't know the pain that I feel inside
Could this be a dream or is it real tonight?
Tell me why, oh why?

I remember the first time that I laid eyes on you
You were the only one for me, I thought I knew
Now my heart is filled with pain 'cuz our love was in vain
Oh, tell me why, oh why, please tell me why

I just wanted to lay down and die
You don't know the pain that I feel inside
Could this be a dream or is it real tonight?
Tell me why, oh why?

I need to know, please tell me
Why did you have to leave me?
I need your love, please tell me
Baby, tell me

I need to know, please tell me
Why did you have to leave me?
I need your love, please tell me why, oh, why?
Please tell me why

I need to know, please tell me
Why did you have to leave me?
I need your love, please tell me
Baby, tell me

I need to know, please tell me
Why did you have to leave me?
I need your love, please tell me why, oh, why?
Please tell me why

I need to know, please tell me
Why did you have to leave me?
I need your love, please tell me
