TITLE: Don't Ask Me Why
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 3]

All the waiters in your grand café
Leave their tables when you blink, ohh
Every dog must have his every day
Every drunk must have his drink
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

/ G - A7 - / D7 - G C / G - A7 - / D7 - G /
   / B7 Em / G7 A7 / C GC GC GC GC /

All your life you had to stand in line
Still you're standing on your feet, ohh
All your choices made you change your mind
Now your calendar's complete
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

Mm, you can say the human heart
Is only make-believe
And I am only fighting fire with fire
But you are still the victim
Of the accidents you leave
As sure as I'm a victim of desire

/ D - / C - / D - G - / E - / A - / E7 - A7 D7 /

All the servants in your new hotel
Throw their roses at your feet, ohh
Fool them all, but baby I can tell
You're no stranger to the street
Don't ask for favors
Don't talk to strangers
Don't ask me why

Yesterday you were an only child, ohh
Now your ghosts have gone away
You can kill them in the classic style
Now you parlez vous Français
Don't look for answers
You took your chances
Don't ask me why
Don't ask me why
