Lyrics

Why can't she be here (tempo = 80)
Intro: (D) (F#m) (Bm) (G) (pause)

(D) She was a part of (F#m) yourself
(Bm) You did everything (G) together,
(D) You both learned to (F#m) accept,
(Bm) All the mistakes of each (G) other
(F#m) Forgive and love in (Bm) different ways,
(G) always thinking of (A) forever,
(F#m) Sharing all the sorrows and (Bm) pains,
(G) bottle of wine when times were (A) better,

Chorus:
(D) Now you're alone, and (D7) waves are rolling,
(G) Sitting here by yourself and (Bm) you're wondering
(D) Why can't she be here with (A) me,
(D) Why can't she be here
(D) (G) (Bm) (A)

(D) Enjoyed the good and (F#m) erased the bad,
(Bm) Going out or cuddle at the (G) fireplace,
(D) Made projects for the (F#m) years you had,
(Bm) And now all is lost in an (G) empty space.
(F#m) Today, you don't know (Bm) anymore,
(G) Where to go, and (A) what for,
(F#m) You lost your directions (Bm) to shore,
(G) An empty horizon, (A) without love anymore

Chorus:
(D) Now you're alone, and (D7) waves are rolling,
(G) Sitting here by yourself and (Bm) you're wondering
(D) Why can't she be here with (A) me,
(D) Why can't she be here

Solo: (D) (F#m) (Bm) (G) (D) (F#m) (Bm) (G)

(Em) You always thought you'd be the one to leave her (G) behind
(Em) That she could show you the way never crossed (G) your (A) mind

(D) Now you're alone, and (D7) waves are rolling,
(G) Sitting here by yourself and (Bm) you're wondering
(D) Why can't she be here with (A) me,
(D) Why can't she be here
(D) (G) (Bm) (A - A7)
(D)
