Why stay?
Why stay?
So steadfast and stolid
And stoic and solid
    C5                  Bb5
For day after every day
Ab5 F5
Why stay?
Ab2 F2
Why stay?
Why not simply give in
F5/Eb Eb5 F5
And   get on with living?
      F5                      Bb
Cause everyone knows you tried
    Eb/Bb   Bb7  Eb/Bb Bb  Eb/Bb  Bb
But somehow some-thing  died
On the way
So tell me why you stay

Ab  F5
Why stay?
Ab  F5
Why stay?
   Eb5/F F5
En-dur-  ing and coping
F5/Eb Eb5  F5
And   hurt-ing and hoping
For day after f**king day

Ab  F5
Why stay?
Ab  F5
Why stay?
Why not simply end it?
F5/Eb Eb5 F5
We'd  all comprehend it
                            F7  Bb
And most of the world would say
     Eb/Bb  Bb  Eb/Bb Bb  Eb/Bb Bb
He's better off that     way
To be free
                F5   F7sus
And maybe so is she

  F5                    F7sus
A promise a boy says forever
  F5                    Dbmaj7          Csus
A boy says whatever may come we'll come through
And who can know how
     Bb2                  Csus  C
When all I know now to be true
        Bbm7                   F5   F7sus
Is this promise that I make to you

  F5                      F7sus
A question, a boy wonders whether
    F5                     Dbmaj7       Csus
The two stay together the way that they stay
For year after year
     Bb2                        Csus  C
From love or from fear, either way
           Bbm7                  F5  Fsus
That's the promise that I made that day

Here's what I say
        Am                     F
To the girl who was burning so brightly
           Am                F
Like the light from Orion above
    Bb                          F2    F  F2
And still I will search for her nightly
   F   Csus            C           F7
If you see her, please send her my love
         Am                   F
And the boy was a boy for all seasons
     Am                      F
That boy is long lost to me now
         Dm                   Gsus    G
And the man has forgotten his reasons
         Bbm7                   C7sus
But the man still remembers his vow

  F5                     F7sus
A promise, a man says forever
  F5                        Dbmaj7  Csus
A man says I'll never regret or let you
    F5                 Am      F/A   Bb    Bb2
The promise I made to stay and I stayed true
Gm7                     Csus
Knowing one day we'd remember that joy
        Gm7                      A          Asus
You'd remember that girl, I'd remember that boy
  A     Dm9    Dm        Dm9/C     Dm/C          Bb
Til we do, the promise I made I'll make it brand new
    C7sus                  F5
The promise that I made to you
