One Reason - Edges

[Intro] 
Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7
Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7          

[Verse 1]
      Dm7         Em7           Bbmaj7
Every night after dinner we'd sit in the moonlight
Gm7         Am7            Bbmaj7
Mom would recall days gone by
      Dm7      Em7         Cm9  F13   Bbmaj7
Later on as I crept to my bed after midnight
Gm7         Am7        Bbmaj7
She'd lie awake and cry

[Chorus 1]
Dm
Why did he do it?
Gm7
What did it accomplish?
Ebmaj7                     Dm
How is this better for our son?
         Bbmaj7
Our only son
             F7(+5)/Eb           
She asked for one reason

[Instrumental]
Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7 
Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7 

[Verse 2]
Dm7             Em7         Bbmaj7
Mom looked so strong but I knew she was hurting
Gm7         Am7          Bbmaj7
I toughened up for her sake
        Dm7           Em7           Cm9     F13   Bbmaj7
But her memories were stained by my fathers deserting
Gm7        Am7        Bbmaj7
I couldn't take his place

[Chorus 2]
Dm
Why did you do it?
Gm7
What did it accomplish?
Ebmaj7                      Dm
How is this better for your son?
          Bbmaj7
Your only son
            F7(+5)/Eb    
I ask for one reason

[Instrumental]

[Bridge 1]
          Dm                                                   Bbmaj7
We'd play catch in the yard on those long summer days with our mitts in hand
          Dm                                                Bbmaj7
We would stand at the mirror, I learned how to shave and become a man
          Dm                                                      Bbmaj7
And every night when you came home from work you would say 'How I love you kid'
          Dm                                                   Bbmaj7
But you never could love like you claimed that you loved after what you did
A7sus4   A7(+5)     Dm  Dm/C  Bbmaj7         
I'm only asking for one reason

[Instrumental]
Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7 

[Verse 3]
         Dm7          Em7          Bbmaj7
When you let yourself go it's like you didn't bother
        Gm7          Am7        Bbmaj7
Did you care how I'd be on my own?
          Dm7       Em7         Cm9        F13   Bbmaj7
How could you be so quick to forget you're my father
         Gm7          Am7            Bbmaj7
And take back all the things you'd shown

[Bridge 2]
Dm  Bbmaj7
Why did you do it?
Dm  Bbmaj7
Why did you make me listen?
Dm
Why did you make me believe in you?
Bbmaj7
Why did I wanna be just like you?
Dm
Why am I turning out just like you?
Bbmaj7              A7(+5)
You taught me to be selfish too.
       Dm                C       Bb
Well I guess that's what fathers do.
                 F+/Eb
They pass things down
Dm                    Bb7 A7sus4
Now I'm here on the ledge
     A7       Dm
This is your legacy
Cm9        F13      Bbmaj7
God please take it away from me
  Dm              Dm/C      Bbmaj7
I wish this could all be undone
        A7sus4      A7-9   Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7    Dm   Dm/C  Bbmaj7        
But I'm left here without one reason
           Dm   Am7  Gm7  Dm
So give me one
