Tell Me Why

                 Sang by Declan Galbraith




In my 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 (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

When so many need somebody

We don’t give a helping hand - Tell me why?


Everyday I ask myself

What will I have to do to be a man?

Do I have to stand and fight

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? tell me why?

Tell me why? Tell me why?

Why, why, why!?
