The Airborne Toxic Event Why Why Why Lyrics

Was a summer’s day when you first walked away

At the time I wasn’t feeling so bad

Gave me shit while I looked away

Just like every big conversation that we ever had

And you know how a thing like that can be such a terrible shame

‘Cause it makes you feel mean

Your eyes were so very green

And it’s foolish to think

You would ever consider it again

After two or three drinks

All the books on the subject say

“Just move along, give yourself some time to think”

They say follow your heart,

What if your heart never knew where to go or why?

You’d have sang goodbye

To people whose every word is just a lie

Like a guilty man who knows he’s gonna fry

I was hoping to catch that old dreamy look in your eye

And it’s foolish to need any sign

You’d consider me again after smoking some weed

All our friends are so bored of hearing

Every tired and desperate word we’d ever plead

They say follow your heart,

What if your heart never knew where to go, or why?

You’d have sang goodbye

To people whose every word is just a lie

And you wonder just a little if your soul

Isn’t starting to die

You spend every waking moment wondering why

Why why why why why

Why why why why why

Was a winter’s day when I finally realized

I was the one always walking away

That you tried so many times and I’d ignored

Every word that you had to say

And you know how a thing like that

Can be such a terrible shame

‘Cause it makes you feel old

And your words were so very cold

And it’s foolish to think

You can bury it all in some endless drive to drink

Every person you meet can tell you’re a ship

Taking water in a storm and you’re starting to sink

If you follow your heart

Then you’re bound to become something else

You take one hard look at yourself

And you’ll say I’m gonna do everything

You said I couldn’t do when I was high

And I’ll write your name in stars across the sky

And we’ll meet somewhere someday and you’ll ask me why

Why why why why why

Why why why why why

Why why why why why
