Verse:
A
Why...
               E   
Why did you go wasting your time on me
A         E         D  
You're so beautiful now
        A              E         D  
There's so much that's left for you now
    A
O, yeah, babe


A
And why...
               E   
Why did you go flashing those eyes at me
    A              E         D  
You know that I am eager to please
     A           E           D  
I've always been eager to please
    A
O, yeah, babe

Pre-Chorus:
     Gbm                    A
Well I, I've got a lot to say
          Gbm    E                   D     A
And I am scared, that you're gonna slip away
    Gbm                               A
And you, you've got this white-eyed gaze
       Gbm   E                D            A
And a smile, that you carry through your days

Chorus:
    Gbm      E   
O, Why-y-y,
    D      A
O, Why-y-y-y
         Gbm         E   
It's the easiest way, 
    D             A
To know you're a liar
        Gbm               E       
And the beauty you heard
          D                 A
I see you talking with her hands
        Gbm                     E   
Well I don't think she knows
          D              A
How she changed all my plans

Verse:
A
And why
                E   
Why did you go wasting your youth on me
A         E         D  
You're so beautiful now
        A              E            D  
There's so much that's left for you now
     A
Oh, yeah, babe


A
And why
               E   
We look at the faces on your bedroom wall.
      A        E          D  
Well, nobody's perfect at all.
A            E               D  
Sometimes it makes you feel small.
     A
Oh, yeah, babe

Pre-Chorus:
     Gbm                    A
Well I, I've got a lot to say
          Gbm    E                   D     A
And I am scared, that you're gonna slip away
    Gbm                               A
And you, you've got this white-eyed gaze
       Gbm   E                D            A
And a smile, that you carry through your days

Chorus:
    Gbm      E   
O, Why-y-y,
    D      A
O, Why-y-y-y
         Gbm         E   
It's the easiest way, 
    D             A
To know you're a liar
        Gbm               E       
And the beauty you heard
          D                 A
I see you talking with her hands
        Gbm                     E   
Well I don't think she knows
          D              A
How she changed all my plans

Bridge:
    Gbm                          E   
The things that I thought would last
              D               A
Well, they're fading, they're fading
    Gbm                  E   
The feelings, I used to have
              D                 A
Well, they're changing, they're changing


    Gbm                          E   
The things that I thought would last
              D               A
Well, they're fading, they're fading
    Gbm                  E   
The feelings, I used to have
              D                 A
Well, they're changing, they're changing, they're changing now.
              Gbm                E   
              D                 A
Well, they're changing, they're changing, they're changing now.

  1. In the chorus it’s not
    To know you’re a liar
    It’s actually
    To know you’re alive
