If You Know Why Tab

   
Band: The Waking Eyes
Song: If You Know Why

OK, I couldn't quite figure out everything, and I don't know how much of this is right,
but it sounds OK to me.

Chords used:
F#m: 244222
B:   X24442
D:   XX0232
E:   022100
C#:  X46664
A:   X02220

Intro: F#m

Verse:
    F#m            B        D            F#m
Breakin' it lightly across your back and mine.
    F#m            B        D         E
Twistin' it slowly as we reach for the line.
    F#m                          B       D              F#m
Yes they're screamin' it softly now so we can't hear the way.
     B                           D
And it's never too late.  Never.
        C#
If we don't take the time to create.

Chorus:
 A           B  D            E
If you know why we walk the broken road.
 A           B  D            E
Could you get by if I would take the load?
 A           B  D            E
Pushin' it through avoid a situation.
 A           B
What's it to you?

    F#m            B        D         F#m
Runnin' on empty with a long way to go.
    F#m            B        D        E
Nothin' upsets me but the fact that I know.
    F#m                          B        D            F#m
They're just hanging it over our heads till the old engine blows.
     B                          D
And its never too late.  Never.
         C#
If we don't take the time to create.
