Spice girls, Darkchild
Let's dance

Oooh...
We could have had it all
But you turned your back

It started with dreams
It started a team
But you weren't as true as you always seemed
You promised to love
No matter what
Yet you turned your back and walked out on me

What made you think
That without me
Your life would be so much better (ohh), but now you see
(But now you see)
That without me
Your hopes (Your hopes) and dreams (And your dreams)
Will never be as good as what you had with me

[chorus:]
So tell me why (Oh why)
Did we end up this way
When we tried (We tried)
To make everything okay
Tell me why (Oh why)
Did you feel you couldn't stay
When we could have stayed together
But you wanted it this way

You never thought
That I would find out
All of the things you said about us
When you're the one who
Decides to
Erase all our plans and say you are through

What made you think
That without me
Your life would be so much better (So much better)
But now you see (But now you see)
That without me
Your hopes and dreams (They will never)
Will never be as good as what you had with me (Had with me)

[chorus:]
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Tell me why)
Did we end up this way
(Did we end up this way)
When we tried (We tried)
(When we tried)
To make everything okay
(Yes we did)
Tell me why (Oh why)
Did you feel you couldn't stay
When we coud have stayed together
(We could have)
But you wanted it this way
Oh, oh, why?

[chorus:]
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Did we end up this way)
Did we end up this way
(I thought it was okay)
When we tried (We tried to try)
To make everything okay (Tried so hard)
Tell me why (Oh why)
Did you feel you couldn't stay
(But it was you who wanted to leave)
When we could have stayed together
(But you wanted it in)
But you wanted it this way
(This way)

Now tell me was it
Your plan all along
To try and use me
And then let go
Now where is the trust
We had between us
I guess that you never played by the rules

Yeah
Let's dance
Come on, come on
Woo
You like that?
You like that?
Oh, oh
Spice Girls
Oh, oh
Darkchild
Oh, oh

Can you tell me

[chorus:]
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Did we end up this way)
Did we end up this way
When we tried (We tried)
(We tried to try)
To make everything okay
Tell me why (Yes we did) (Oh why)
Did you feel you couldn't stay
When we could have stayed together
(But you wanted it in this way)
But you wanted it this way

[chorus:]
(Oh, tell me why)
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Did we end up this way)
Did we end up this way
When we tried (We tried)
(We always tried again)
To make everything okay
(We always tried again)
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Why you'd tell me why?)
Did you feel you coudln't stay
When we could have stayed together
But you wanted it this way
(You wanted it in this way)

[chorus:]
Tell me why (Oh why)
(Oh, tell me why)
Did we end up this way
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
When we tried (We tried)
To make everything okay
Tell me why (oh why)
Did you feel you couldn't stay
When we could have stayed together
But you wanted it this way
