The day you left I've felt so strange I thought for sure that the world would change
But the birds still sing and babies still cry and life goes on I wonder why
An old love dies but nobody cares the world just minds it's own affairs
The winners smile and the losers cry and life goes on I wonder why
How can that moon that promised so much still shows his face at night
And those birds that are singing heart that start crying when I walk in sight
I sit here and cry as lovers stroll by reminding me about you and I
They live to love while I live to die but life goes on I wonder why
Yes life goes on I wonder why
