The Day You Took The Good Away

This song is by Front Porch Step and appears on the album Aware (2013).

Original video
I saw you standing on that bridge.
Right then I knew the life that I would like to live.
Your frizzy hair tangled my mind.
Right then I knew that I would love you for all time.
You ran your hand across the ledge.
Right then I felt that all my hunger had been fed.
You cracked a smile up towards the sky.
That thought alone will keep me happy for my life
But I ask now...

How can angels fly when you're still on the ground?
'Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around,
And now I don't know what to say because the pain won't go away,
And I've crying since the day that you took all my good away.

I wish I had never walked away,
'Cause if I knew you'd jump, I'd dive into that bay.
And I would have saved you from the cold,
'Cause when you took that leap you stole my heart and soul.
So I ask now...

How can angels fly when you're still on the ground?
'Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around,
And now I don't know what to do, 'cause I've been standing at your grave,
And I've been crying since the day that you took all my good away.

Your mother said you're up above,
And all you wanted was a man for you to love.
Well I just started breaking down,
Because the angel I'd been searching for had left me on the ground,
And now I'll die alone.
