TELL ME WHY LYRICS:

In my dream children sing
a song of love for every boy and girl
the sky is and fields are green and
is the language of the world
then I wake and all I see is a world of
people in __.

Tell me why (why)
does it be like this
Tell me why (why)
is there something I have Tell me why (why)
cause I don't understand when so many
need somebody we don't give a
Tell me why

Everyday I ask
what will I have to do to be a man
do I have toand
to prove to everybody who I am
is that what my life is for
to in a world full of war

Tell me why (why)
does it have to be like this
Tell me why (why)
is there something I have missed
Tell me why (why)
cause I don't understand so many
need somebody we don't give a
Tell me why (tell me why)
Tell me why (tell me why)
Tell me why (tell me why)
Just tell me why (why, why, why)

Tell me why (why)
does it have to be like this
Tell me why (why)
is there something I have missed
Tell me why (why)
cause I don't when so many
need somebody we don't give a helping hand

Tell me why (why, why does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why, why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why, why do we never learn)
can someone tell us why we let the forest ?

(why, why do we say we care) Tell me why
(why, why do we stand and stare) Tell me why
(why, why do the dolphins cry)
can someone tell us why we let the ocean ?

(why, why if we're all the same) Tell me why
(why, why do we pass the blame) Tell me why
(why, why does it never end)
can someone tell us why we cannot just be friends?

why, why (do we our eyes)
why, why (do the lie)
why, why (do we fight for
can someone tell us why cause we don't understand
