Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
If you don't love me anymore.

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when I lost your love.

[Chorus:]
I wake up in the morning and I wonder.
Why everything is the same as it was.
And I can't understand,
No I can't understand Why life goes on the way it does.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when we said goodbye.

[Chorus]
I wake up in the morning and I wonder.
Why everything is the same as it was.
'cause I can't understand,
No I can't understand Why life goes on the way it does.

Tell me why does my heart go on beating?
And why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when we said goodbye.
Why?
It ended when we said goodbye.

    General Comment:oh my god, why has no one commented on this song yet?!?!
    This is like the most beautiful, sad song out there...it's the ultimate break up/lost love song, and Nina's voice just fits so very well with the lyrics...

    General Comment:great cover of Skeeter Davis's song.
    Nina Gordon's voice is hauntingly beautiful, which works so well for the lyrics.

    General Comment:this works for some people, but i sometimes wonder if there is life after love. it's worst when you wake up in the morning and you feel like hell -and your day probably isn't going to get much better. nina gordon's voice in this poignant song bring all those emotions out.
