Yep. Written when BJ was 14. There is already a pretty good tab for this on here, but 
submitting it because there are differences between this one and the other one.

Lyrics:
Verse:
I saw you standing alone
With a sad look on your face
You call him on the phone
Looks like he left you
Without a trace
Tears falling out of your eyes
He's living in a disguise
You've been feeling bad for so long
You wonder if it's right or wrong

Chorus:
Why do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?

Verse:
Now many days have gone by
And you still just sit there and cry
You're feeling bad for yourself
His memory will always dwell
You're so obsessed with his love
That's why push came to shove
You've been feeling bad for so long
You wonder if it's right or wrong

Chorus:
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?

Interlude:
You find a way out...
To throw it all the way
But you can bet...
You got something to say

[solo]

Chorus to end:
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?
Why Do You Want Him?
