                                              “Why” by Lily Allen

( I happen to think this is a beautiful little song and it never got heard as it 
was a B-side on the “Not Fair” EP…….couldn’t decide on standard tuning or Capo on 
the 1st so I did both)

Intro

C#  C#7  F#  F#m  (2X)


Verse 1

C#                 C#7               F      F#m
Why aren't I one of these interesting people

          C#         C#7       F#     F#m
Who's always got something to say?

    C#        C#7           F#        F#m
To not be contrived and to feel so alive

         C#         C#7       F#    F#m
And to never have wasted the day

    C#           C#7          F#             F#m
To go for long walks and have well-informed talks

      C#        C#7        F#    F#m
In an non-confrontational way

C#           C#7            F#         F#m
Why aren't I one of these interesting people

     C#  C#7  F#   F#m         C#   C#7   F#   F#m
And why ………………………………won't you stay?



Chorus


G#                    C#
I'm still having the same conversation

G#                     F#
I've been having for years

G#                        C#
I just want to read and retain information

G#                    F#
Just face up to my fears

G#                         C#
I look at myself and it's so plain to see

G#               F#
All I need is to change

G#                    C#
Not too much, I still want to be me

G#                  F#   F#m
Everyone looks the same




Verse 2


C#          C#7          F#         F#m
Why is my phone full of so many numbers

     C#           C#7    F#   F#m
And why doesn't anyone call?

C#          C#7             F#        F#m
Maybe they think that I'm always too busy

     C#       C#7            F#    F#m
Or maybe I've no friends at all

         C#       C#7             F#         F#m
When I'm watching tv they're all out necking Es

         C#     C#7      F#      F#m
And well obviously I'm appalled

C#         C#7          F#          F#m
Why is my phone full of so many numbers

    C#   C#7   F#     F#m        C#   C#7  F#  F#m
And why……………………………………… don't you call?

G#                         C#

G#                F#
All I need is to change

G#                      C#
Not too much, I still want to be me

G#                   F#   F#m
Everyone looks the same
