Mystery

(lyrics & music by Chris Watson, Copyright ©.)

It's one of those l-o-n-g days that doesn't seem to ever end. This song is philosophical, or phil of something else.

[instrumental picking part]

[picking part, verse]
The day is long. It doesn't seem to ever end.
Where are my friends? Why am I so alone?

[instrumental verse parts, the picking emphasizes "so alone"]

Well, I don't need them. I'll get by.
I must be here for some reason,
guess I'll find out when I die.

[heavy part]
I wonder at the plunder of my soul.
I don't want for nothing: shelter, food or clothes.
Everything's provided, but I'm still undecided.
Every question is at least two-sided.

[bridge]
The questioner is not separate, you see.
it's all a mystery.

[repeat picking verses, heavy part & bridge]

[picking part, rap to audience: end with “We are R Band”]
