Tell Me Why

In a dream, children sing

A song of love for every boy and girl

The sky is blue and fields are green

And laughter is the language of the world 

Then I wake and all I see 

Is a world full of people in need 

Tell me why does it have to be like this? 

Tell me why is there something I have missed? 

Tell me why cos I don't understand 

When so many need somebody 

We don't give a helping hand 

Tell me why! 

Everyday ask yourself : what will I have to do to be a man? 

Do I have to stand and fught?

To prove to everybody who I am? 

Is that what my life is for

To waste in a world full of war?

Tell me why does it have to be like this?

Tell me why is there something I have missed?

Tell me why cos I don't understand 

why 

why

Our world
