Song Description

Inspired by the 60's and 70's rock I loved, and discovered "new" during the "metal rock" area of the 80's. Derek and the Dominos, Allman Brothers, Traffic, CCR, CSN, Neil Young, Cream, Blind Faith, Jesse Colin Young, etc.

Story Behind the Song

Basically a song about the breakup of our Band after our firs Tour of the Southwest US which was a struggle for all of us. I decided to turn it into a "Love Gone Wrong" breakup song about a relationship that was just over, and nothing could be done to change that fact, even though so many feeling and thought and abandoned dreams remained. The emotions don't understand "facts" well nor do they adapt to them or let go easily, but there is beauty in sadness.

Lyrics

Tell Me Why


I don't care about tomorrow if you're leaving today

you know you cancelled my plans for the weekend when you stopped the week on a Wednesday

you're off and you've left me to spin round in those circles the vicious are in



Tell me why I'm cryin' tell me why



there's no use in tryin' tell me why



Tell me Why I'm cryin' tell me why



Why did I waste my time?



You don't have an answer or you're not going to talk

you're as silent as a scorpion in a circle of chalk

twisted words in something you said rip through my mind

like a barbed wire thread



Tell me why I'm cryin' tell me why



there's no use in tryin' tell me why



Tell me Why I'm cryin' tell me why



Why did I waste my time?



No one can change it now you've made up your mind

but when the sheets get dirty in your feather bed

I guess you'll come sleep in mine

the music's over but the melodies play

and this bad bad feelin' won't wash away



Tell me why I'm cryin' tell me why



there's no use in tryin' tell me why



Tell me Why I'm cryin' tell me why



Why did I waste my time?
