Why Did You Leave Me Today

This song is by Gene Clark and Carla Olson and appears on the album So Rebellious A Lover (1987).

For so long we worked so hard
We didn't have a dime
But we had one anothers love
And that was all the time.

Then one day our ship came in
The answer to our dreams
A mansion filled with social life
And gold and limousines.

Why did you leave me today
I was going to give you the world
I watched my dream slip away
All I can say why did you leave today.

As I walked through these grand old halls
I feel so cold inside
I stare upon these grand old walls
And all the costly prizes
I realize I gladly trade them, these worldly things
To lie beside you one more time
And share only our dreams.

Why did you leave me today
I was going to give you the world
I watched my dream slip away
All I can say why did you leave today.
