"Why Do They Leave?" as written by and Ryan Adams....
Oh why do they leave
Oh why do they leave

On the day that you needed them the most
Simple cards and things
Rose colored sunsets no flowers for me
Simple cards and things
Rose colored sunsets no flowers for me
Lover why do you leave
Lover why do you leave

On the day I want you for me
Say say it ain't so
That he will take you tomorrow
And I will sit here today

The worst
Simple cards and things
Rose colored sunsets no flowers for me
Simple cards and things
Rose colored sunsets Curtains for me
Lover why do you leave
Lover why do you leave
On the day I want you to be

The one

    General CommentOkay, there are no posts for this song. I think I understand why ... it's bad. Ryan is human, which is disconcerting for the listener and comforting for the songwriter. It's just so trite, you know? It's makes me feel guilty about loving the rest of the album: I'm not that sappy and hopeless, am I? I just skip ahead to "shakedown on 9th street" That's not a particularly deep track either, but it sure is fun.
