"Never Dreamed You'd Leave In Summer" as written by and Stevie/wright Wonder....
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone

You said there would be warm love in springtime
That was when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find myself all alone

You said then you'd be alive in autumn
Then you said you'd be the one to see the way
No, no no no no I never dreamed you'd leave in summer
But now I find my love has gone away

Why didn't you stay?

    General CommentI agree, it is a sad song... When you're in love, it's hard to picture the relationship ending, or being alone. And then, when something goes wrong you're lost.. because, well... that wasn't supposed to happen to you........ i think that's what stevie wonder is trying to convey... by asking simply, "Why didn't you stay," he shows his vulnerability, confusion and pain.... I love this song

    General CommentMy wife died in summer. I never expected her to go away. Now I am left to carry on alone in the cold of winter.
