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
'cause our love was in vain
Tell me why, oh why, please 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

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

Repeat 2 while:
I need to know right now
Won't you tell me
Can I testify right now

Girl I used to do the things you wanted me to do
I cooked your breakfast, I rubbed your back
But you had to step out on me

And with another man
Why did you do this to me
Please tell me, please tell me

I deserve better than this
Won't you tell me
What did I do wrong
Oh, tell me why why why
I get lonely without you baby
