WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BE SO GOOD
WRITERS JERRY FOSTER, BILL RICE

Why did you have to be so good
When you didn't mean to stay
Why did you have to be so good
If you were leaving anyway
You left impressions on my heart and in my mind
Of a love I'd never had
You loved me just long enough to make me blind
To all the hurt and pain that I had in the past
Why did you have to be so good
When you didn't mean to stay
Why did you have to be so good
If you were leaving anyway
You make me feel a way I've never felt before
You even promised me a dream
You were all that I had
Ever had and more
You bound my heart to you, and then you broke the chain
Why did you have to be so good
When you didn't mean to stay
Why did you have to be so good
If you were leaving anyway
