Alone I stand in the cold.

The answer clear as day.

 

The reason you left I will never understand.

Why couldn't you stay?

 

The answer controls my life.

Take this feeling away.

 

I will always be wondering,

Why couldn't you stay?

 

Stay

The abandoned creek made me quiver.

 

As I walked the bank it made me shiver.

Soon death would be my giver.
