I Don't Know Why

Late last night night I was seriously drinking
I spent a long time just sitting and thinking out loud
I don't know why

I talked so big, but I felt so little
I dropped my fig leaf there in the middle of the crowd
I don't know why

I know that everyone could see, see
That there was something there for me, me

I stepped into a Greyhound station
With a great big head full of fear and frustration, I
I don't know why

Chorus
I don't know why, why
Why I cry, cry
Over you, you
But I do, do
Oh no I, I don't know why

Elephants fly, the Great Pyramid crumbles
Big girls cry and the runner never stumbles
No, nor do I

Tough guys dance on a make-believe ballroom
Always on a Sunday, I just want come home
I don't know why

I don't know what else I can do, do
This always starts and ends with you, you

I rest my head on a vibrating bed
In a Motel 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Oh I, I don't know why

Chorus

Late last night I was seriously drunk
And I slithered and I slipped and I fell and I sunk to my knees
I don't know why

I woke up when somebody whispered,
"Don't be afraid, life's full of little mysteries
And big goodbyes."

I don't know what else I can do, do
These days always start and end with you, you

I left my heart in a city by the river
And I hope, I just that you can deliver my soul
I don't know why

Chorus
