The Wedding Present -
"Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now?"

[ from the album "George Best Plus" (1997) ]

Lyrics

You've never mentioned this before (ohh)
It seems I'm always last to know
And do I have to guess how you're going to feel each day?
You never have a word to say
You should have told me
I don't understand
Why you didn't tell me

Surely you must know I hate what I'm doing
I don't want to upset you but it's yourself you're fooling
The last thing I need is part twelve of the row
But just why are you being so reasonable now?

I don't dare answer the phone and when you call
I still pretend that I'm not home
I don't want to see you anymore, oh love
It's not just me I'm thinking of
No one can change that
Much in three days
It's not yours to take back

Surely you must know I hate what I'm doing
I don't want to upset you but it's yourself you're fooling
The last thing I need is part twelve of the row
But just why are you being so reasonable now?

(ohh)
(ohh)

How can you do this to me?
How can you do this to me?
How can you do this to me?
How can you do this to me?
