Why, what now ?

This was our favorite place; I'm staring into space
Passing friends say "Hi"
And I'm trying not to cry
I'm asking "Why, how did this happen? What now?

What now, what am I to do now?
Trying to get over you now
What now?"

Never noticed before the cracks on that door
And the insects crawl up and down the wall
I'm asking "Why, how did this happen? What now?

What now, what am I to do now?
Trying to get over you now,
What now?"

It's not that I have nothing to do
It's that I can't get my mind off of you
I know we don't dare try again
But sweet memories bring me such pain
How did this happen?

I'm hearing the moan of that saxophone
How can they play our song when everything has gone wrong?
I'm asking "Why, how did this happen? Why? What now?

What now?
