Why Say Goodbye?

HEY MUM I KNOW THAT U LEFT
BUT MUM I STILL WONDER WHY
U WOULD LEAVE US WITHOUT SAYING
GOODBYE,U LEFT ME WEEPING
I WEPT AND WEPT

MUM U WERE MY MORNING SUN
U WERE THAT STAR THAT SHINES
IN HEAVEN AT NIGHT, U WERE
THAT NIGHT WARM WIND THAT BLOWS

BUT MUM WHY DID U NOT SAY GOOD BYE
MUM U NEVER SAID THAT I'M LEAVING
IF MONEY WOULD HAVE SAVED YOUR LIFE
I WOULD HAVE GIVEN MILLIONS AND BILLIONS
FOR U .

BUT MUM U NEVER SAID GOODBYE
BUT I KNOW THAT THE ROAD IS NEAR
AND THE POSTURE IS SMOOTH I WILL
COME TO YOUR WORLD ANY TIME MUM
I LOVE U MUM.
