"Don't Ask Me Why" as written by and Laura Beatrice Marling....
I choose to stay far away from the ones that think
Money is money to share
Don't ask me why and I'll tell you no lies.

Sonny don't come here no more
He don't drink from this well
He's done with the world
And done with the girl
And I don't ask him why
And he tells me no lies

Those of us who are lost and low
I know how you feel
I know it's not right but it's real
But it's real

I don't ask for love
And I don't beg for money
I'm just asking for grace and forgiveness now honey
Don't ask me why
And I'll tell you no lies

Been looking for answers in unsavory places
On the highest of mountains
And the lowest of bases
And I still don't know why
I still don't know why

Those of us wo are lost and low
We know how you feel
We know it's not right but it's real
But it's real

I took the wind from the sea
I took the blood from an arrow
I took the wisdom of spring
And I was thrown and blown and tossed and turned
Until time found its hand
And called it an end

Me and time, we go way back when
I was a child and I always knew it

I knew my name, I knew my road
And I stayed away from heavy loads
And still I am low
Oh lord, am I low

Those of us who are lost and low
We know how you feel
We know it's not right but it's real
But it's real

    Lyric CorrectionI choose to stay far away from the ones that think
    Money is money to share
    Don't ask me why and I'll tell you no lies.

    Sonny don't come here no more
    He don't drink from this well
    He's done with the world
    And done with the girl
    And I don't ask him why
    And he tells me no lies

    Those of us who are lost and low
    I know how you feel
    I know it's not right but it's real

    I don't ask for love
    And I don't beg for money
    I'm just asking for grace and forgiveness now honey
    Don't ask me why
    I'll tell you no lies

    Looking for answers in unsavory places
    On the highest of mountains
    And the lowest of bases
    And I still don't know why
    I still don't know why

    Those of us wo are lost and low
    We know how you feel
    We know it's not right but it's real
    But it's real

    I took the wind from the sea
    I took the blood from an arrow
    I took the wisdom of spring
    And I was thrown and blown and tossed and turned
    Untill time found its hand
    And called it an end
    Me and time, we go way back when
    I was a child and I always knew why

    I knew my name, I knew my road
    And I stayed away from heavy loads
    And still I am low
    Oh lord, am I low

    Those of us who are lost and low
    I know how you feel
    I know it's not right but it's real
    But it's real
