"I Don't Know Why" as written by and Kweller....
Check me out
I'm losing control
I want to rock and roll
But everything I planned just slipped right through my hand
I don't know why

I'm a nice guy
I want to take it easy baby
But every time I start, my world falls apart
I don't know why

[Chorus:]
The world is feelin' like it's passin' me by
I'm fixin' to lose it
But I don't know why

Check me in
I want to be your friend
I want to be your lover, baby
But everything I say comes out the wrong way
I don't know why

So I guess I'll let it slide by
I want to take it slowly, honey
I'm feelin' like a fake, every move I make
I don't know why

[Chorus]

Again and again and again and again I try
I'm fixin' to lose it
But I don't know why

[Chorus]

    General CommentWow, what a brutally honest song.

    To me, this song is all about not knowing why things are the way they are. And trying to figure them out. Hard stuff.

    General CommentWaitingonyou - It's on the "Freak Out...It's Ben Kweller" album. There are only a 1,000 or so copies out there. I think you'll be able to find it using a peer-to-peer network. Best of luck. It's an awesome EP.
