 Why-------------? Why------------?

[Verse 1] 
[C] How many times [C/B] I have to try t[Am7]ell you,
That I'm [Fadd9] ...sorry f[G]or the th[C]ings I've done?
[C/B] Oo - oo, [Am7]oo![Fadd9]
[G] But w[C]hen I start to try to tell you,
[C/B] That´s when you have to tell me,
[Am7] ...Hey,this kind of tr[Fadd9]ouble's...
...O[G]nly j[C]ust ...begun--[C/B]---! Oo, [Am7]yeah![Fadd9]
[Verse 2] 
[A] [D] I tell myself too many t[Bm9]imes,
Why don't you ever learn to [D/F#]keep your big mouth [Gadd9]shut?
[A] [D] That's why it hurts so bad,
To [Bm9]hear the words that keep on f[D/F#]alling from your [Gadd9]mouth,
F[Fmaj7]alling from your mouth, fa[D9]lling from your mouth!
[C] [C/B] [Am7] [Fadd9] [G] [C] [C/B] [Am7] [Fadd9]  
 Tell me,...why---------? ...Why---------?

[Verse 3] 
[G] [C] I may be mad, I may be [C/B]blind,
I may be viciously un - [Am7]kind,
But I can [Fadd9]still read [G] ...what you're th[C]inking,
[C/B] Oo - oo, oo - oo, [Am7]oo - oo![Fadd9]
[G] [C] And I've heard it said,
Too many [C/B]times, that you'd be better off,
Be - s[Am7]ides, ...why can't you[Fadd9] see th[G]is boat is sin[C]king?
(This boat is s[C/B]inking, this boat is sinking!)[Am7] [Fadd9]
[Verse 4] 
[A] [D] Let's go down to the water's e[Bm9]dge,
And we can [D/F#]cast away those [Gadd9]doubts,
[A] [D] Some things are better left un - s[Bm9]aid,
But they [D/F#]still turn me inside [Gadd9]out,
T[Fmaj7]urning inside out, tu[D9]rning inside out!
[C] [C/B] [Am7] [Fadd9] [G] [C] [C/B] [Am7] [Fadd9]  
 Tell me,...why---------? Tell me, ...why---------?

[Verse 5] 
[G] [C] This is the book I never read,
[C/B] These are the words I never said,
[Am7] This is the path I'll never tread,
[Fadd9] These are the dreams I'll dream in - st[G]ead,
[C] This is the joy that's seldom spread,
[C/B] These are the tears, the tears we shed,
[Am7] This is the fear, this is the dread,
[Fadd9] These are the contents of my h[G]ead!
[Verse 6] 
[C] And these are the years that we have spent,
[C/B] And this is what they represent,
[Am7] This is how I feel! [Fadd9] Do you k[G]now how I feel?
[C] 'Cause I don't think you know [C/B]how I feel,
[Am7] I don't think you know what I feel,[Fadd9]
[G] [C] [C/B] I don't think you know what I feel,[Am7] [Fadd9]
[G] [C] You don't know what I feel!
