by Rachel Williams

People say they love me
And I know they really do
But then something always happens
And there's nothing I can do

They hug me and they hold me
And they say I love you dear
But then they have to go away
The words are all I hear

It hurts when people love you
And they leave you all alone
And you can't even hear their voice
By picking up the phone

Why was love invented
If it always makes you cry
It makes no sense to love someone
Cause they always say goodbye
