                         Don't Know Why - Saves the Day
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By: Josh Wysocki

Tuning: Chris Conley plays this song in Eb with a capo on the 3rd fret, but
        placing the capo on the 2nd fret in Standard Tuning works just as
        well.

Notes: This is the way Chris Conley plays this song on acoustic guitar. Some
       chords may not be exact, but this tab is as accurate as I can make
       it. This is one of my favorite Saves the Day songs and I couldn't 
       find an accurate tab anywhere. The notes in this tab do NOT 
       correspond to the actual fret on a guitar,but the number of frets   
       away from the capo!!! Enjoy!

The must be something wrong with me.
I get so tired I can't sleep.
The voices in my head are haunting my dreams.
No matter how I try, to kill the thoughts inside...

The mirror staring back at me.
The cracking lines along my face.
The times I tried to get things straight but could not.
I know how hard I try, to keep myself alive...

Funny how, when the darkest of
Nights falls down, worry that I will
Never see
The sun is shining again.

The world goes round, what was up is 
Again back down, wonder if I could
stick around
Feel the light of the day.

Sometimes I feel like I am dying down here.
I feel a raging storm inside of my skin.
The dial tone is there but no one's calling.
I feel the weight of time, wonder when I will die...

*Sometimes Chris ends the song here, and sometimes he plays the intro or  
 some variation of it while humming the lead guitar.
