Band: The Waking Eyes
Song: If You Know Why

OK, I couldn't quite figure out everything, and I don't know how much of this is right,
but it sounds OK to me.

Chords used:
F#m: 244222
B:   X24442
D:   XX0232
E:   022100
C#:  X46664
A:   X02220

Intro: F#m

Verse:
    F#m            B        D            F#m
Breakin' it lightly across your back and mine.
    F#m            B        D         E
Twistin' it slowly as we reach for the line.
    F#m                          B       D              F#m
Yes they're screamin' it softly now so we can't hear the way.
     B                           D
And it's never too late.  Never.
        C#
If we don't take the time to create.

Chorus:
 A           B  D            E
If you know why we walk the broken road.
 A           B  D            E
Could you get by if I would take the load?
 A           B  D            E
Pushin' it through avoid a situation.
 A           B
What's it to you?

    F#m            B        D         F#m
Runnin' on empty with a long way to go.
    F#m            B        D        E
Nothin' upsets me but the fact that I know.
    F#m                          B        D            F#m
They're just hanging it over our heads till the old engine blows.
     B                          D
And its never too late.  Never.
         C#
If we don't take the time to create.

sounds like this)

Pushin' it through avoid a situation.
A           B  D            E
What's it to you if it was my creation.  My creation.

Bring me back love.  Can you bring me back, can you bring me back love?

Bring me back love.  Bring me back baby I need it.

in the chorus right after the A chord there is a quick single strum of the E before the transition to the B chord.
