Declan Galbraith – Tell Me Why? lyrics

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

(Children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(Children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(Together) just tell me 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) cos I don't understand.
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 burn?

(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 some one tell us why we let the ocean die?

(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 some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

(Why, why do we close our eyes?)
(Why, why do we really lie?)
(Why, why do we fight for land?)
Can someone tell us why cos we don't understand?
Why, why?

    The song is really heart touching. I cannot explain that what I am feeling now. When I heard this song for the first time, I was really shocked. The questions that were rising in my minds are as follows. Who has written this beautiful song?. Frm where he/she belongs to? Then I knew that he was no one other than declan. Everyday my day starts by listening this song only. Whenever I m forced to sing a song in my school, I sing this song only so that my friends could be more serious about the crimes happening in the world. They too ask me that who has written this song and I tell them it is you who has written this. It has became my favourite song. I like it very much and also wants to write such a beautiful song like you. It inspires me very much as whenever I see the beggers around my colony I donate them some clothes, food, toys so dat they can also have some rights to live their lives peacefully. So a very thank you to you declan for writing this song. You are the best. You rocks. Declan rocks. Thank you very, very, very, very much.
