      So why, so why so sad



I havenít tabbed the break, cause itís not played with a guitar. Anyway, if 
you want to play it, you just have to mess around with the chords in the 
verse and chorus.

Good luck!

Things get clear when I feel free
But what happens next comes easily
What gentle hands you brought to me
When your eyes feel weak and tired it truly hits

When I missed you you were my life
When I missed you you were my life
So at ease in the midnight sky
So at ease in the midnight sky
My insides will look like wire
My insides will look like wire
Paralysed as if to prove my thoughts

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
You've given all the love
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

My smile as real as a hyena's
My smile as real as a hyena's
Burns an express-way to my skull
Burns an express-way to my skull
Well I will stick myself together again
My spirit, soul and body know I can't pretend

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
You've given all the love
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
You've given all the love
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad
