[Intro]

[Chorus]
C        C/B   Am7       C/B C        C/B   Am7    C/B
   Why-------------?            Why------------?


[Verse 1]
C                  C/B                          Am7
   How many times    ...do I have to try ...to tell you,
         Fadd9       G        C
That I'm   ...sorry for the things I've done?
C/B           Am7    Fadd9
     Oo - oo, oo!
G       C
   But when I start to try to tell you,
C/B
     That´s when you have to tell me,
Am7                    Fadd9
 ...Hey,this kind of trouble's...
    G    C             C/B       Am7   Fadd9
...Only just ...begun-----!  Oo, yeah!


[Verse 2]
A D                          Bm9
     I tell myself too many times,
                            D/F#                Gadd9
Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut?
A D             
     That's why it hurts so bad,
   Bm9                          D/F#             Gadd9
To hear the words that keep on falling from your mouth,
 Fmaj7                      D9
Falling from your mouth,  falling from your mouth!


[Chorus]
         C     C/B  Am7  Fadd9  G C      C/B  Am7  Fadd9
Tell me,...why---------?          ...Why---------?



[Verse 3]
G C                        C/B
    I may be mad, I may be blind,
                        Am7
I may be viciously un - kind,
          Fadd9      G                 C
But I can still read  ...what you're thinking,
C/B                    Am7      Fadd9
     Oo - oo, oo - oo, oo - oo!
G C
     And I've heard it said,
         C/B
Too many times, that you'd be better off,
      Am7                   Fadd9  G             C
Be - sides, ...why can't you see this boat is sinking?
               C/B                            Am7  Fadd9
(This boat is sinking, this boat is sinking!)


[Verse 4]
A D                                Bm9
     Let's go down to the water's edge,
           D/F#            Gadd9
And we can cast away those doubts,
A D                                    Bm9
     Some things are better left un - said,
         D/F#                 Gadd9
But they still turn me inside out,
 Fmaj7                D9
Turning inside out, turning inside out!


[Chorus]
         C     C/B Am7  Fadd9     G   C      C/B  Am7  Fadd9
Tell me,...why---------?     Tell me, ...why---------?


[Verse 5]
G  C
      This is the book I never read,
C/B
      These are the words I never said,
Am7
      This is the path I'll never tread,
Fadd9                                        G
      These are the dreams I'll dream in - stead,
C
      This is the joy that's seldom spread,
C/B
      These are the tears, the tears we shed,
Am7
      This is the fear, this is the dread,
Fadd9                               G
      These are the contents of my head!


[Verse 6]
C
     And these are the years that we have spent,
C/B     
     And this is what they represent,
Am7                      Fadd9          G
     This is how I feel!        Do you know how I feel?
C                                 C/B
    'Cause I don't think you know how I feel,
Am7                                      Fadd9
     I don't think you know what I feel,
G  C  C/B                                     Am7  Fadd9
           I don't think you know what I feel,
G  C
      You don't know what I feel!

This is the most accurate chord version according to me.
