And I Don't Know Why

Written By: M. Scott Horn

And I Don’t Know Why by Scott Horn

You took everything, now its second best
If you leave my mind you can have the rest
No need to lie, I’ll make a guess

I took your hand, and you took my side
And we danced out on the great divide
Then you had to run and hide
And I don’t know why

So back to the stage you recognize
Did you save your face, or get a new disguise
Well, it sure don’t suit your eyes
And I don’t know why

Hard to say where you’re gonna go
Hard to sail when the winds won’t blow
And what are ya gonna get?
Well, you never know
Hmmm, ya never know…..

So you left me right where you lie
Don’t forget your fables and your nursery rhymes
And try to sing your own lullabies
And I don’t know why…..

Someday by Scott Horn

Been mislead,
And you finally let go of the thread
Blurred all the rest,
And the red sun leads the West
Fake as the blue
In the sky we’re lookin’ through

And we always had to walk alone
Next time I think you’re take me on….
My way

Lead me through the sunshine
Heavy on the goodbye

You and me,
And your poison sure set us free
If you don’t give a damn,
Just wear the hood like the hangman
And whistle when you come home;
If you listen, you can hear me moan

And one more thing, if you please
And I won’t ask you to get on your knees….
And pray

Lead me through the sunshine
Heavy on the goodbye
