Why’d You Go And Leave Me
by G. David Schwartz

Why on earth
And why in heaven
Did you get a car
And just drive to Route Seven,
Didn’t say a word
Of farewell or, absurd,
Just said not a thing?
This did make my ears ring
While trying to hear your thoughts.
What you need and what you want,
Now I think it is true,
You wanted to leave me blue.


I Just Don’t Understand It
by G. David Schwartz

I just don’t understand it.
I just simply do not know why,
Why she never talks to me.
Nor does she just run by.
I don’t know what I did,
Or what I didn’t do,
Don’t know what she wants
Or wants me to do,
Don’t know where to go,
Don’t know what to be.
I don’t know what she’s thinking
When she does see me.
She does never tell me,
She don’t even talk.
She just goes on practicing
Her quick quite mantic walk
