When you left me you left me on the way back down
far afield and casting for the way back home
I was wounded, a cripple cast upon the streets
pushed by currents, coursing through my deepest dreams
and if I'm asking myself why would you leave me here to die
why love and hate cohabitate in a lover's lonely eyes
don't ask why, oh baby don't ask why
oh no

When you loved me, your love was like a winding road
long and leading blindly to the mountain's edge
I was spellbound seeking vainly for a sign
Silently suspended by the thinnest thread
if I'm asking myself why would you leave me here to die
why, love and hate cohabitate in a lover's lonely eye
don't ask why, oh baby don't ask why
oh no

When you left me I wandered down through dusty towns
witness to the wars that raged within men's minds
I was thirsty, a refugee upon the road
walking through the ruins of this kingdom come
and if I'm asking myself why would you leave me here to die
why love and hate cohabitate in a lover's lonely eyes
don't ask why, oh baby don't ask why
oh no
