Why?

This song is by Andrew Bird and appears on the album The Swimming Hour (2001) and on the live album Fingerlings (2002).

Why? Why'd you do that?
You shouldn't have done that
If I told you once, I told you three times
That you'll get your punishment when you
Show me your crimes

And it's not a spell or a curse you put on me
Or the way you make me smile so tenderly
How I wish it was your temper you were throwing
Damn you for being so easygoing

I thought the time would tell
My sins would provoke you
To raise, raise some hell, oh...

Not a chance
Whatever happened to fiery romance
How I wish it was your dishes you were throwing
Damn you for being so easygoing

Why? Why'd you do that?
Why'd I do what, huh?
Nothing. You get it? What? Nothing.

I thought the time would tell
My sins would provoke you
To raise, raise some hell, oh...

Don't give me that line
Don't try to tell me inaction is not a crime
Can't you see what kind of seeds you're sowing?
Damn you for being so easygoing
