Reasons Why  Nickel Creek

by Nickel Creek (Sean Watkins and David Puckett)
charted by Bo Frazer <>
with help from Larry Dean
NOTE: capo on fret 1

Intro = verse 1st half
Verse 1:
[Em]Where am I today? I [D]wish that I [C]knew,[D]
'Cause [Em]looking around there's [D]no sign of [A]you.[C] [D]
[Em]I don't remember one [D]jump or one [C]leap,
Just [Em]quiet steps a[D]way from your [A]lead.[C] [(D)]
Verse 2:
I'm holding my heart out but clutching it too,
Feeling this sort of a love that we once knew.
I'm calling this home when it's not even close,
Playing the role with nerves left exposed.
Chorus 1:
[D]Standing on a [C]darkened [G]stage, [D]stumbling through the [C]lines.[G]
[A7]Others have ex[D]cuses, but [Em]I have my [G]rea[C]sons [D]why.
<guitar solo = verse>
Verse 3:
We get distracted by dreams of our own,
But nobody's happy while feeling alone,
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall,
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall.
Chorus 2:
And [D]climb high to the [C]highest [G]rung, to [D]shake fists at the [C]sky.
While others have excuses, I [Em]have my [G]rea[C]sons [D]why.
With so much de[D]ception it's [C]hard not to [Em]wander a[D]way,
It's [C]hard not to [Em]wander a[D]way,
It's hard not to wander away.
(hook repeat until fade)
