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 trouble's only just begun"

I tell myself too many times
Why don't you learn to keep your mouth shut?
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
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 glad
I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you are thinking
What you are thinking
What are you thinking?

I've heard it said too many times
You'd be better off
Besides, why can't you see this boat is sinking?
This boat is sinking

Let's go down to Water's Edge
We can cast away those stones
Some things are better left unsaid
They still turn me inside out
Turn me inside out
Turn me inside out

Tell me why
Tell me why

You tell me...
This is the book I've never read
These are the words I've never said
The past I'll never tread
And the dreams I'll dream instead

The joy that seldom's spread
The tears, the tears we shed
The fear and the dread
And the contents of my head

And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
This is how I feel, do you even know how I feel?
'Cause if you know
I don't think you know
How can you know?
You never ask me why, why
