The words of her promise The flame of her faith The love that would never drift away Where did they go Lord, where did they go?
You know somehow forever Slipped out of my hands And my dreams ran away with the wind Where did they go Lord, where did they go
You know sometimes I wish I had lost her to another Well but Lord she just walked off all alone And the heart that's within me is not bitter just hurt And bewildered because her love had gone
Oh the passion I trusted The truth that I leaned on And the hope that would forever keep me strong I cry out my questions Oh, the answers are all gone Where did they go Lord, tell me where did they go Where did they go Lord, tell me where did they go
