Why Do You Cry, Pretty Vanessa?

For Vanessa
.

Why do you cry, pretty Vanessa?
Why do you stay away from me?
Nothing I did for you could make you feel contented
You felt that you’d be better off without me,
But sometimes I see you crying
.

Starting a new life on your own
Hasn’t brought you happiness or prosperity
Darling, don’t be so stubborn
You know that my heart has been aching
Since you ran away from me
.

The door to my love is always open,
But you refuse to enter again
Darling, I didn’t push you away
You chose to go your own way
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 to me whenever you want
So why do you cry, pretty Vanessa?
Why do you stay away from me?
