Why Couldn't I Read
The Handwriting On The Wall


I had everything this world had to offer
Until my selfishness caused us to part
Why couldn't I read the handwriting on the wall
Trying to tell me I was breaking your heart.


My future once looking bright is now dark
Because without you tomorrow has no meaning
Why couldn't I read the handwriting on the wall
Instead of about myself always pipe dreaming.


I didn't realize what I had until you left me
Why couldn't I read the handwriting on the wall
Telling me living my life without your love
Would be absent of love and no happiness at all.


Why couldn't I read the handwriting on the wall?
