  Am                      Dm
  We've been together for years,
  Am                    Dm
  You for me and me for you, my dear,
  Am                            Dm
  It seems you're changin' your song,
  Am                            Dm
  Your tune is flat and all the words are wrong.
  C      G       E
  Please tell me why___________?


  You never acted like this,
  You never turned away from my kiss,
  Who am I with I can't tell?
  Our life was good but now it's something else,
  Please tell me why____________?

  Our bed's__ so cold,__ and covered in lies,
  Oh why_________? 
  Tell me why____?

  It hurts with such a great passion,
  Please tell me why_________?
