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 you ever learn to keep your 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?
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 (This boat is sinking 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?
