About Why

"Why" is a song recorded by American singer Sabrina Carpenter included on the Japanese edition of Singular: Act I (2018). The track was written by Carpenter, Brett McLaughlin, and its producer Jonas Jeberg. The song was released on July 7, 2017, through Hollywood Records. "Why" is a midtempo electropop and dark pop song backed by a hypnotic synthesizer loop and a finger-click beat and slick beat at the chorus. According to Carpenter, the lyrics talks about her and a guy being completely opposite, but they’re made for each other. The song peaked at number twenty-one on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100, marking Carpenter's second Billboard-chart single and was certified gold by United States (RIAA). It was accompanied by a music video directed by Jay Martin and filmed in New York City. It was released on Vevo channel on July 19, 2017. The music video begins with Carpenter and her love interest, Casey Cott, having a conversation where both don’t have the same likes in movies. Carpenter promoted "Why" with several televised performances, including on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Live with Kelly and Ryan.

You like New York city in the daytime
I like New York city in the nighttime
You say you like sleeping with the air off
I don't, I need it on
You like the light coming through the windows
I sleep late, so I just keep 'em all closed
You ignore the music on the radio
I don't, I sing-a-long

I don't ask for you to change, baby no no no
And you don't ask for me to change

Tell me how we're not alike
But we work so well and we don't even know why
Funny how the stars crossed right
'Cause we work so well and we don't even know why
You can call it fire and ice
But we work so well and we don't even know why
We don't even know why, no no
We don't even know why, no no no

No no no no
We like it in the daytime
We like it in the end of time
No no no no
We like it in the daytime
We like it in the end of time

Cold outside and you're just in a t-shirt
I have cold blood even in a sweater
You start your night sippin' by the kilo
I don't, I know you know

I don't ask for you to change, baby no no no
And you don't ask for me to change

Tell me how we're not alike
But we work so well and we don't even know why
Funny how the stars crossed right
'Cause we work so well and we don't even know why
You can call it fire and ice
But we work so well and we don't even know why
We don't even know why, no no (no no no)
We don't even know why, no no no

No no no no
We like it in the daytime (we don't even know)
We like it in the end of time (we don't even know)
No no no no We like it in the daytime
(We don't even know, know, know, know, know, know, know, know, know)

Somehow we end up on the same side
And you wouldn't think that we'd be alright
Even our eyes are different colors, but we see fine
Somehow we end up on the same side (up on the same side)
And you wouldn't think that we'd be alright (think that we'd be alright)
Even our eyes are different colors, but we see fine

(Oh) tell me how we're not alike
But we work so well and we don't even know why ('cause we work so well and we don't even know why, why)
Funny how the stars crossed right 'cause we work so well and we don't even know why
You can call it fire and ice
But we work so well and we don't even know why ('cause we work so well and we don't even know why, why)
We don't even know why, no no
We don't even know why, no no no

No no no no
We like it in the daytime (oh)
We like it in the end of time (we don't even know why)
No no no no
We like it in the daytime
We like it in the nighttime
