"The Reasons Why I'm Gone" as written by Gary Lynn Loyd and Chuck Cannon....
She had worn every groove in the vinyl floor
Cause the path she walked went back and forth
From the gas stove to the kitchen sink
Lots of whiles and wheels
Lots of time to think
She could have been an actress
Or a singer on stage
She could have written poetry
But she never wrote a page

She just stacked in lies
She loves a man
And she sang along
With his song and dance
And her light has been
Sad poetry
So she's leaving him her diary
And he can read the reasons why she's gone

He was late again with a brand new excuse
He knew just what he'd say
When all hell broke loose
He walked in and found here diary
He said 'Now this will good readin'!'
I'll just let her sleep
He read about an actress and a singer on the stage
And when he read the poem written on the final page
It said 'I've acted like I've loved a man and I've sung along with his song and dance.
And my life has been sad poetry.
So I'm leaving him my diary.
And he can read the reasons why I'm gone
Yes he can read the reasons why I'm gone.
