    You must have been in a place so dark, you couldn't feel the light
    Reachin' for you through that stormy cloud
    Now here we are gathered in our little home town
    This can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd

    Oh, why?
    That's what I keep askin'
    Was there anything I could have said or done?
    Oh, I had no clue you were maskin' a troubled soul
    God only knows what went wrong
    And why you would leave the stage in the middle of a song
    Mmmmmmm...

    Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old
    Rounding third to score the winning run
    You always played with passion no matter what the game
    When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

    Oh, why?
    That's what I keep askin'
    And, was there anything I could have said or done?
    Oh, I had no clue you were maskin' the troubled soul
    Oh, god only knows what went wrong
    And why you would leave the stage in the middle of a song
    Yeah...

    Now the oak trees are swayin' in the early autumn breeze
    A golden sun is shining on my face
    Through tangled thoughts I hear, a mockingbird sing
    This old world really ain't that bad a place

    Oh, why?
    There's no comprehending
    And who am I to try to judge or explain?
    Oh, but I do have one burning question:
    Who told you life wasn't worth the fight?
    They were wrong
    They lied
    And now you're gone
    And we cry

    'Cause it's not like you to walk away in the middle of a song

    Your beautiful song
    Your absolutely beautiful song
