"Don't Know Why" as written by Daniel Alan Jones and Victoria Louise Jones....
One by one, drinks are gone
Do I have to stay?
Hate the sound of one more pound
As it rolls away

Why did I need your proof?
When I knew the truth

And I don't know why
I just let it slip by
Me all the time
I just wish you'd 've tried

I don't want to know your game
Let alone her name
No matter what you say to me
We are not the same

Why do you make me cry?
Try to justify
Don't right your wrong with my mistakes
'Cause my head's held high

And I don't know why
I just let it slip by
Me all the time
I just wish you'd 've of tried

And I don't know why
I just let it slip by
Me all the time
I just wish you'd 've of tried

Dreams we have as kids all fade away
Now, it's not the same

And I don't know why
I just let it slip by
Me all the time
I just wish you'd 've of tried

And I don't know why
I just let it slip by
Me all the time
I just wish you'd 've of tried, yeah

    General CommentOne of the best songs on the album in my opinion - the tour version where it was accoustic leading into the drums was excellent, it really excelled the song.

    I love the line: "Why did I need your proof? When I knew the truth. And I don't know why, I just let it slip by me all the time,
    I just wish you'd have tried."

    I lie the fact that it's about parents splitting then it has other subtle meanings.

    General CommentIt's certainly one of the best Mcfly have ever written, along with She Falls Asleep.
    I agree with FrankiexCore.

    General CommentWasn't this about his dad cheating on his mum? I think I read that somewhere. When I first heard it I wasn't that impressed, but since I watched the tour version I absolutely love it.

    General CommentWell i never knew this song was about parents splitting up till i read it on here. I love this song, i can honestly say its my favourite song in the world. Whenever i listen to it, it makes me feel happy.

    This has to be the best song they've ever written, as for once its not about trying to get with a girl.

    It actually has a meaning, and thats what makes me love it so much.

    General CommentThis is a pretty good song, by mr Jones & his sister vicki. It is basically about Parents going through a tough time, and having to be in the middle of it. Not the best song on the album but its a tune and the lyrics have so much meaning.
