Song: "The Reason Why"

Album: These Days

B      Abm   E                 F#                      

Why do I, choose the things I choose?

Why do I, always find some lame excuse?

Why do I, not realize what I would do?

E                   F#      B—Abm—E—F#

Oh I wish I knew the reason why.

B       Abm  E                        F#    

Why do you, get that sad look in your face?

Why do you, pull away from my embrace?

Why do you, see all my faults and my mistakes?

E                      F#     B

Oh I wish you knew the reason why.


Ebm                                E

Why do we treat each other like we do?

B                       F#

It’s like we never even try…

Ebm                          E

Why can’t we get back to the love we knew?

C#m              F#-E-Ebm-C#m-B           

Oh, why oh… baby why?

B     Abm  E                         F#                     

Why do we, have to play the same old game?

Why do we, run away from who's to blame?

Can’t we see, to lose this love would be a shame

E                    F#      B 

Oh I wish we knew the reason why…

(Repeat Refrain)

E                     F#     B—G#m—E—F#--

Oh I wish we knew the reason why…(2X)
