Why (AOL Black Voices)

It's been this many years
It's been that many tears
And I still have to ask the same question
Why?

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When you and me would kiss at night, remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Funny me, funny you, don't have nothing left in common
You wanted me to have your heart now you want it back
What about the promise you made to me?
That you wouldn't trade the key in for no damn reason

And suddenly we're flying high now it's Mayday we're falling fast
You're trying to get lost, I'm trying to pull up and damn I can't say
You said you didn't need me
I really didn't think that you would leave me

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When you and me would kiss at night, remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life?
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Now the kids are looking at me like I'm to blame
And no longer got their respect for me, don't want to hear
What I'm saying, I know how it feels to be ashamed
'Cause when I was young I felt that pain too

And I can't say nothing that would 'cause you to make a change
And that's the reason that we're going our separate ways
Then who am I fooling?
What am I doing thinking you love me?

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When you and me would kiss at night, remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life?
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

You would think by this time I would get it right
Know the schemes and the things that make it be right
When you said you could stay no longer
I thought I had just a little more daylight

Like when we use to turn a fight into a good night
I know the things I use to do to make you feel right
I would give in anything for fortune I made
To bring back the days that the feeling was so right

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When you and me would kiss at night, remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life?
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When you and me would kiss at night, remember what we tripped like
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
When we were saying things like where have you been all my life?
Why don't it feel like it felt on the first night?
Now it's so hard to find two words to say

Why the dreams we had we threw them all away?
Why the dreams we had we let them slip away?
Why the dreams we had we threw them all away?
