why don't you still love me

why don’t you say it
when i ask you what is wrong
there used to be sparks flying
now they’re gone
i gave myself to you
and did so completely
i’m still in love with you
why don’t you still love me

we lived together
and in this way our love grew
we’d celebrate each victory
work each problem through
i was always there for you
you knew i’d never leave
i still believe in you
why don’t you still love me

there are houses that
withstood the test of time
there’s ancient wheels made of stone
that are still used to grind
man still looks to the stars
with wishes to succeed
i’m still in love with you
why don’t you still love me
