Tell Me Why

Album: After The Gold Rush (1970)
  • Sailing heart-ships through broken harbors
    Out on the waves in the night
    Still the searcher must ride the dark horse
    Racing alone in his fright
    Tell me why
    Tell me why

    Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself
    When you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

    Tell me lies later, come and see me
    I'll be around for a while
    I am lonely but you can free me
    All in the way that you smile
    Tell me why
    Tell me why

    Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself
    When you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

    Tell me why
    Tell me why

    Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself
    When you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell? Writer/s: Neil Young
    Publisher: Broken Fiddle Music
