To Reason Why

I don't remember what you told me late last night
But it seemed to still be weighing heavy on your mind
Letters to your parents letters to your friends
Letters like you'll never speak to them again

Ours is not to reason why
Ours is not to reason why
It's do or die

Far from home and feeling all alone
Feel the highway running underneath my bones
It took time to make my mind recall which state I'm in
Lost in West Virginia praying for the ways I've sinned

Ours is not to reason why
Ours is not to reason why
It's do or die

Never had so many days
Dancing on so thin a line
Never have such times
Combined on me to stay

I look around and I can't see you anymore
Hiding out for weeks in the bed we made there on the floor
It took time to make my mind recall which state I'm in
With your name still on my breath my fingers longing for your skin

Ours is not to reason why
Ours is not to reason why
It's do or die

TO REASON WHY
