Let you leave that day
Let you walk on by
Breaking up would pay
But you had far more pride
If I could give
Would God accept me
Tried so hard to live
Oh why
Did you have to go out of my life
Never got the chance to say goodbye

[Chorus]
You flew away
You flew away
You left you flew away
This heart it aches
Oh babe you flew away
And I cry I pray each night to God

(tell me why)
Did you fly away
Hey
Woah baby
(tell me why)
Why, why
Did you fly away
Hey

Sat along the bay
Watched the stars in the sky
Seems like yesterday
That you were by my side
If I could give
Would you still want me
And would you forgive
Oh why
Did you have to go out of my life
Never got the chance to say goodbye

[Chorus:Repeatx2]

Why you want to fly yeah
(why'd ya fly)
Why you want to fly away
Why you want to fly yeah
(why'd ya fly)
Listen now baby baby

Why why why
Did you fly away hey
Oh baby
(tell me why)
Tell me why, tell me why
Did you fly away hey
Yeah, yeah
Why'd ya fly
Why'd ya fly
Baby baby
