Lover Why

By Jean Louis Milford - Paul Yves - John Wesley
A sign of time
I lost my life, forgot to die
Like any man, a frightened guy
I'm keeping memories inside
Of wounded love

But I know
I'm more than sad and more today
I'm eating words too hard to say
A single tear and I'm away
Away and gone

I need you
So far from hell, so far from you
'Cause heaven's hard and black and gray
You're just a someone gone away
You never said goodbye
Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

Everytime
I hear your voice, you heard my name
You built the fire, wet the flame
I swim for life, can't take the rain
No turning back

I need you
So far from hell, so far from you
'Cause heaven's hard and black and gray
You're just a someone gone away
You never said goodbye
Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

    Just a correction to line 5 of the lyrics

    Read "a woollen glove" - and not "of wounded love"

    Paul ives may have made reference to the french saying "une main de fer dans un gant de velours" (an iron hand, in a velvet glove). Unfortunately paul can no longer explain exactly what he meant.
