Why Did You Leave Me?

I have checked website after website, including your very comprehensive site, and yet, I can't believe that one oif the most beautu-iful love ballads of the late 50s-early 60's, "Why Did You Leave Me?", doesn't appear. That title DOES appear several or some CURENT or recent songs, but not the one crooned by a male singer back then. I can even give you the full lyrics (but I'll start with "Why did you leave me, my heart wants to know; why did you leave me, when I need you so; we had the world and there were dreams to share"...etc., etc. Can you tgell me the singer's name, and could I find the song on line? Thank you!

The song was from 1952 and this site starts with 1954. But I'm starting to add some pre-1954 songs, so I'll add it with the next round of additions.

Here it is on YouTube…
