(from Michael Card's _Joy in the Journey_
 loosely translated by d. baderman)

Am                 Am/G            Am/F#     G         Am
Why did it have to be a friend who chose to betray the lord.
And why did he use a kiss to show them,
     Am/F#      G       Am
 its not what a kiss is for.
C                 G   
Only a friend can betray a friend,
   F                       E
 a stranger has nothing to gain.
    Am                  Am/G  
And only a friend comes close enough,
    Am/F#      G       Am    Am/G Am/F# F G
 to ever cause so much pain.        

Am                    Am/G
Why did there have to be a thorny
 Am/F#         G        Am
 crown pressed upon his head.
It should have been a royal one,
         Am/F#      G      Am
 made of jewels and gold instead.
C              G
It had to be a crown of thorns,
   F                          E
 because in this life that we live,
    Am                    Am/G
For all who would seek to love,
              Am/F#         G      Am    Am/G Am/F# F G
 the thorn
