Why
Why do you go wasting your time on me
You’re so beautiful now
There’s so much that’s left for you now
Oh yeah, babe

And why
Why do you go flashing those eyes at me
You know that I'm eager to please
I’ve always been eager to please
Oh yeah, babe

But I, I’ve got a lot to say
And I'm scared that you’re gonna slip away
And you, you’ve got this wide-eyed gaze
And a smile that you'll carry through your days

Oh why
Oh why
It’s the easiest way
To know you’re alive
And the beauty you heard
I see her talking with her hands
Well I don’t think she knows
How she changed all my plans

Why
Why do you go wasting your youth on me
You’re so beautiful now
There’s so much time left for you now
Oh yeah, babe

Why
We look at the faces on your bedroom wall
Nobody’s perfect at all
Well, sometimes it makes you feel small
Oh yeah, babe

Well I, I’ve got a lot to say
And I'm scared that you’re gonna slip away
And you, you’ve got this wide-eyed gaze
And a smile that you'll carry through your days

Oh why
Oh why
It’s the easiest way
To know you’re alive
And the beauty you heard
I see her talking with her hands
Well I don’t think she knows
How she changed all my plans

The things that I thought would last
Well they’re fading, they’re fading
The feelings I used to have
They’re changing, they’re changing

The things that I thought would last
Well they’re fading, they’re fading
The feelings I used to have
They’re changing, they’re changing, they're changing now

They’re changing, they're changing now
They’re changing, they're changing now
