   C                             - G                               Am  

1.    How many times        do I have to try to tell you

                   F                 C                      - G          Am   - F

    that I'm sorry for the things I've done,     uh uh uh.

              C                                       - G

    But when I start to try to tell you       thatīs when you have to tell me,

Am                            F                 C                 - G  - Am - F

    hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun.

 

D                                     A

    I tell myself too many times, why don't you ever

                  Bm                               G 

    learn to keep your big mouth shut ?

D                                                 A

    That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words

                         Bm                         G       C                           F

    that keep on falling from your mouth, falling from your mouth,

     Am                        D

    falling from your mouth, tell me  ...

 

    C          - Em - Am       - F

+      Why..................y ?            (2x)

 

   C                                         G                                      Am

2.    I may be mad, I may be blind, I may be viciously unkind,

                    F                                 C         - G             Am   - F

    but I can still read what you're thinking,         uh uh uh.

C                                                    G  

    And I've heard it said too many times that you'd be better off,

          Am                           F                      C

    besides, why can't you see this boat is sinking,

                       G          - Am - F

    this boat is sinking.

 

    D                                               A

+     Let's go down to the water's edge

                        Bm                       G 

    and we can cast away those doubts.

D                                                  A

    Some things are better left unsaid,

                  Bm                         G

    but they still turn me inside out,

     C                     F   Am                  D

    turning inside out, turning inside out. Tell me ....

 

   C         - Em - Am       - F                  - C         - Em - Am       - F

+     Why.................y ?        Tell me !         Why.................y ?

 

    C

+      This is the book I never read,

G

    these are the words I never said,

Am

    this is the path I'll never tread,

F

    these are the dreams I'll dream instead.

C

    This is the joy that's seldom spread,

G

    these are the tears, the tears we shed,

Am

    this is the fear, this is the dread,

F

    these are the contents of my head.

C

    And these are the years that we have spent,

G                                                    - Am                                     - F

    and this is what they represent         and this is how I feel.

                                               - C

    Do you know how I feel ?         'Cause I don't think you know,

G                              Am                      - F

    I don't think you know what I feel.

 

    C          - Em - Am       - F                        C

+      Why..................y ?          You donīt know what I feel.
