Why'd I have to go a be a fool again
Why'd I have to go and make a big thing out of nothing
I didn't know what I had till you were gone
It was right in front of me all a long
And now those days are same old story
I'm felling more like betty glory

I had it all I threw it all aside
Thinking there was more that I needed to find
I had it all, baby
Till you went away
Blue sky, sunshine
And butterflies
Those were the conditions that I left behind
Why did it let it go away

I had it all

Where are all the fire works and gold I seek
I still haven't found the magic I was lookin' for that made me leave
I traded in my comfort zone
For empty nights of bein' a lone

I had it all I threw it all aside
Thinking there was more that I needed to find
I had it all, baby
Till you went away

Why did I believe that little voice
That led me down the path to this bad choice
Why don't I listen to the angels when they sing

I had it all I threw it all aside
Thinking there was more that I needed to find
I had it all, baby
'Till you went away
Blue sky sunshine
And butterflies
Those were the conditions that I left behind
Why did it let it go away?

Why'd I have to go and be a fool again?

    General Commentif you can't find this song, it's on you tube... i'm pretty sure they haven't recorded it yet. great song all the same. i think this song pretty much speaks for its self

    girl breaks up with guy because she thinks the grass is greener on the other side
    now she's lonely and trying to remember why she traded a good, comfortable relationship for the unknown.
    she has probably broken up with the guy more than once, and went back to him because she was lonely, but every time she goes back she gets restless again.
    she's frustrated because she still hasn't found the "magic she was looking for". probably the purpose of the break up

    should she get back with him? clearly, she is miserable without him. Or should she be patient and have faith that she will find the magic she was looking for? Or was the magic there all along? and who is betty glory?

    I wish i knew.

    (also: i really wish they didn't use the word butterflies in this song. reminds me of something natasha bedingfield would say. this song is better than that.)
