Wonder Why

Words and Music by Colin Ward

The Miami sun brings that Florida dawn,
It's time for breakfast in bed,
After candlelight dinner on the kitchen floor,
The newspaper lying unread

But you've never driven down Rodeo Drive,
Only Main St. USA,
Simple or sublime those Arabian nights,
Seem decades or light years away

Wonder why? (Wonder why)
She's got dreams
as big as the Montana sky,
Wonder why? (Wonder why)
She wants things,
That someday will make her cry

Bahamian beaches or Florida sand,
A trailer or a shack in the woods,
As long as I have you here with me,
The living is gonna be good
Now I've got you it's a simple life,
Warm breezes and sun in the sky,
That's all we need, no trouble and strife,
She wanted more, wonder why?

That Tasmanian Devil left me last year,
Driving her Bentley to school,
She went past downtown to the Middle East,
For an oilman covered in jewels

Wonder why? (Wonder why)
She's got dreams
as big as the Montana sky,
Wonder why? (Wonder why)
She wants things,
That someday will make her cry

Wonder why? (Wonder why)
She's got dreams
as big as the Montana sky,
Wonder why? (Wonder Why)
She left me last year,
Didn't hear her say goodbye
