1. Why does the sun  go on shining,

    Am                                      Em

    why does the sea rush to shore?

     Dm                                 Em             A

    Don`t you know, it`s the end of the world,

                Dm                                 G  - G7

    `cause you don`t love me any more.

2. Why do the birds go on singing,

    Am                                Em

    why do the stars glow above?

     Dm                                 Em              A

    Don`t they know, it`s the end of the world,

       Dm                  G            C

        F                                               C

    I wake up in the morning, and I wonder,

            Dm                       G         C

    why everything`s the same it was.

             Em             Am             Em            Am

    But I can`t understand, no, I can`t understand,

           Dm                                 G    - G7

    how life goes on the way it does.

 

      C                                        G

3. Why does my heart go on beating,

    Am                                     Em

    why do these eyes of mine cry?

       Dm                       G              C   - F - C

    it ended when you said good-bye.
