  (use riff A throughout verse) 
  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____________?

  Why do you hurt me the way that you do? 
  That's not fair I wouldn't do it to you, 
  Our bed's__ so cold,__ and covered in lies, 
  Oh why_________?  
  Tell me why____? 
 
  (Guitar solo)

  Why do you act like you do? 
  Why do you always lie to me? 
  It hurts deep in my heart, 
  It hurts with such a great passion, 
  Please tell me why_________?
