Don't Ask Why
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 8-20-2018

I played a game, it was the National pastime
And of course, time passed me right by
Some of it tragic, but most of it magic
Somehow I was caught in the rye
Don't ask why

Now I'm just an old man, who dreams about dreaming
With nightmares of mud in his eye
All of a sudden, the answer's much clearer
But harder to hear and not cry
Don't ask why
--- Chorus ---
If you ask me, I'll tell you a story
Of how love will always survive
A word to the wise, truth is, larger than life
There's no denying it, Love,
Don't pass me by

--Solo Verse Break--

-Repeat Chorus-

Just like a body of water reflecting
The moon and the stars from the sky
Tonight's the light is projecting the depth
Of the love that is shared in our eyes
Don't ask why, don't pass me by
Don't ask why, don't pass me by
Don't ask why, don't pass me by
