Don't Ask Why

Most days, I wake when the sunshine crawls into my bed
Fit as a fiddle when the world wakes up
Taking a drink from a golden cup

Most days, I'm looking on the bright side of an open door
Swing your partner and do-si-do
My feet keep telling me to go, go, go

Cross my heart, but I don't ask why
Some nights I can't help but cry

Young life, it's fragile as a daisy in an open field
With a bit of good luck you're a flower crown
Or else the rain'll come to knock you down

Bad news, it hit me like a freight train goin' so fast
Standin' in the rain where the daisies grow
Prayin' to a god that I don't know

Cross my heart, but I don't ask why
Some nights I can't help but cry
When the trumpet sounds from the other side
Put the shovel in the ground
Don't ask why

Don't ask why
Whether it's your heart that's broken or your brother's mind
Little sister running home with a blackened eye
I don't ask why, I don't ask why

Cross my heart and I hope to die
Some nights I can't help but cry
When the trumpet sounds from the other side
Put the shovel in the ground
Don't ask why
