Lyrics

Why, why can't you love me again?
Why, why are you shy on love?
If you only knew how much I love you
Why can't you love me again?

Why, why don't you open your heart?
Why, why are we so far apart?
If you only knew how much I love you
Why can't you love me again?

I just want your loving arms around me, yeah
I got to find a way to make you take me back

Baby won't you tell me
Why, why why why are we so far apart?
Why, why don't you open your heart?
If you only knew how much I love you
Why can't you love me again?

I just want your loving arms around me, yeah
I got to find a way to make you take me back

Baby, won't you tell me
Why, why why why are we so far apart?
Why, why don't you open your heart?
If you only knew how much I love you
Why can't you love me?
Why can't you love me?
Why can't you love me again?

    I can’t find information about a song recorded by The Quarrymen. The song is called Why (Sara). I just found a video on youtube and i don’t know who wrote it…. i was hoping to find some information on this website but there’s nothing about the song.
