It was a summer's day when you first walked away
At the time I wasn't feeling so bad
You gave me shit while I looked away
Just like every big conversation that we ever had
And you know how a thing like that
Can be such a terrible shame
'Cause it makes you feel mean
Your eyes were so very green

And it's foolish to think
You would ever consider it again
After two or three drinks
All the books on the subject say
Just move along, give yourself some time to think
They say follow your heart
What if your heart never knew where to go?
Oh, why

You're just saying goodbye
To people, 'cause every word is just a lie
Like a guilty man who knows he's gonna fry
I was hoping to catch that old dreamy look in your eye

And it's foolish to need any sign
You consider me again after smoking some weed
All our friends supportive
Even every tired and desperate word we'd ever plead
They say follow your heart
What if your heart never knew where to go?
Oh, why

You're just saying goodbye
To people, 'cause every word is just a lie
And you wonder just a little if your soul doesn't start to die
And you spend every waking moment wondering why
Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why

It was a winter's day when I finally
Realized I was the one always walking away
That you'd tried so many times
And I'd ignored every word that you had to say
And you know how a thing like that
Can be such a terrible shame
'Cause it makes you feel old
And your words were so very cold

And it's foolish to think
You can bury it all in some endless drive to drink
Every person you meet can tell
You're a ship taking water in a storm and you're starting to sink
If you follow your heart
Then you're bound to become something else
You take one hard look at yourself

And you say I
Do everything you said that I couldn't do when I was high
And I'll write your name in stars across the sky
And we'll meet somewhere someday and you'll ask me why
Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why, why, why, why
