Why
Craig Cardiff Lyrics


How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I′m sorry for the things I've done
But when I start to try to tell you
That′s when you have to tell me
Hey, this kind of trouble's only just begun
I tell myself too many times
Why don't I ever learn to keep my big mouth shut
That′s why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me
Why
Why
I may be mad
I may be blind
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you′re thinking
And I've heard it said too many times
That you′d be better off
Besides
Why can't you see this boat is sinking
Let′s go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out turning inside out
Tell me
Why
Tell me
Why
This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I′ll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head
And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
And this is how I feel
Do you know how I feel?
′Cause I don′t think you know how I feel
I don't think you know what I feel
I don′t think you know what I feel
You don't know what I feel

Can a song start out with a question?
Like if the head’s a lamp, is the heart a compass?
Does the soul swallow? do the ghosts spit
Down from heaven where the angels live?

The whole time that i’ve been running
Was never away from, was
Always coming back to, back to you

Who sees the soul? does it have hands and fingers
And does the soul stretch? crack under the weight of
All the missed lines, wonderings hesitations
All i know is that i‘m done with waiting

I needed you to know how
There was nevеr any doubt [how if
The head’s a lamp the hеart’s a compass

The whole time that i’ve been running
Was never away from, was
Always coming back to, back to you

Glory and wonder awe fills the head
Is it loving or fighting is this all there is?
All the missed lines, wonderings hesitations
All i know is that i‘m done with waiting

I needed you to know how
There was never any doubt [how if
The head’s a lamp the heart’s a compass

The whole time that i’ve been running
Was never away from, was
Always coming back to, back to you
