 [VERSE]
                G#m             F#
 You'll never know when your last breath’s
         B               E
 Gonna fade like a July sunset
           G#m            F#
 Or how a tragedy like gravity
             B                    E
 Holds you still while the world keeps spinnin'
 
      G#m                   F#
 It's hard not to question circumstances
       B                      E
 That leave you with nothin’ to say
           G#m                       F#
 Is there some kind of message? Some kind of lesson?
  E
 Damn, life's hard to explain

 [CHORUS]
                   G#m      F#
 Oh, God, tell me why things happen
           B            E
 Things happen like they do
                           G#m    F#
 Leave you thinking 'bout how time leaves you
      B                E
 It gets you all confused
           G#m                F#
 In the blink of a moment, gone 'fore you know it
  B                  E
 Hits you right out of the blue
            G#m         F#
 Wonderin' why things happen
          E               G#m F#  B E
 Things happen like they do, yeah
 
 [VERSE]
         G#m                      F#
 How a child that's just been named
               B                    E
 Can then be pulled from the arms of a mother
        G#m                     F#
 Or a cross on the side of a two-lane road
             B                  E
 Holds the memory of somebody's brother
       G#m                   F#
 You try not to question God and his judgement
        E
 But, damnit, I don't understand
