Lyrics

I’ve got to find a way
To take me back to yesterday.
How could I ever hope to forget you?

Won't you show me a place
Where I can hide my lonely face?
I knew you'd break my heart if I let you.

Like a moth to a flame,
Like a song without a name,
I've never been the same since I met you.
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?

Like a bird on the wing,
I need a brand new song to sing,
I can't keep on singing about you.

I'm beginning to see
What a fool you've made of me.
I might have to break the law when I catch you.

Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?

You keep on running away;
I've got a better game to play,
I try to go on living without you.

I'm beginning to see
What a doggone fool you've made of me.
I might have to break the law if I catch you.

Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
Why does love have to be so sad?
x2

Find me a place I can try to hide my lonely face
why, why, why
Like a moth to a flame I gotta find me a whole new song to sing
why, why, why

Why does love have to be so sad?
