Yesterday's news is tomorrow's blues
But today I am alive
(I am alive)
Today I did much more than survive

I learned to live by the love I give
It's the only thing I own
Shadowed valleys that I've known
Helped me build my home

So tell me why?
Why should I be afraid?
(Why should you be afraid?)
We've seen better
We've seen darker days

So tell me why?
Why should I be afraid?
(Why should you be so afraid?)
Sittin' here watching just another parade

Just another parade

Summer will end, then the death begins
Grandma's hands are moving slow
She takes the time to let me know
Winter's winds will blow
Will blow

She said look at your sun, he's a golden one
Makes you turn your pages slow
Is life more precious than we know?
Every day unfolds
(Every day)

So tell me why?
Why should I be afraid?
(Why should you be so afraid?)
I've seen brighter, seen darker days

So tell me why?
Why should I be afraid?
(Why should I be so afraid?)
Sittin' here watching
It's just another parade

Just another parade
Just another parade
Just another parade

So tell me why
Why are you so afraid?
Why should I be afraid?
When you know we've seen brighter
We've seen darker days
So tell me why, why should I be afraid?
Why should you be afraid?

Sittin' here watchin' it's just another parade
Tell me why should I be afraid?
I've seen better I've seen darker days
Tell me why, why should I be afraid?
Sittin' here watchin' it's just another parade
