Why Cry, Pretty Vanessa?

Why cry, pretty Vanessa?
Why stay away?
Nothing that I did for you
Could ever make you content.
You felt that you would be better off without me,
Yet I still see you crying.

Starting a new life on your own
Hasn’t brought you happiness or prosperity.
Don’t be so stubborn.
You know how my heart is aching
Since you ran away from me.

The door to my love is always open,
But you refuse to enter.
I didn’t push you away.
You chose to go.
And nothing would make me happier
Than to have you back in my arms.

Something tells me that you still love me,
And my love for you hasn’t died.
You can come back whenever you want.
So why cry, pretty Vanessa?
Why stay away?
