Capo 2nd Fret (key of E)

D                     G     A  D   D/F# G  D
I don't know why the sky is so blue.

                  A7     C+9    G        Em   A7    G
And I don't know why I'm so in love with you.

                     D/F#        Bm7     A        Em7       A7
But if there were no music, then I would not get through.

                  D    G      A                 G   D
And I don't know why I know these things, but I do.

I don't know why, but somewhere dreams come true.
And I don't know where, but there'll be a place for you.
And every time you look that way, I would lay down my life for you.
I don't know why, I know these things, but I do.

I don't know why,  but some will make you cry.
And I don't know how, but I will get you by, I will try.
They're not trying to cause you pain, they're just afraid of loving you.
I don't know why, I know these things, but I do.

I don't know why, the trees grow so tall.
And I don't know why I don't know anything at all.
But of there were no music, then I would not get through.
I don't know why I know these things, but I do.
I don't know why I know these things, but I do.
