Some say the right words, some say it's absurd
To think that children can brutally die
I say it's easy, so very easy
And all we do is wonder why

In spite of progress. you say we're making
In spite of wisdom. stretching afar
We find solutions, always solutions
But none to mend a broken heart

Can't be in two places at one time
I can't even stretch my legs
Without someone pointing a finger at me
Saying you'd better stop or else
You are the kingdom. you are the glory
No doubt without you I just couldn't survive
And yet It happens, oh when It happens
What do we do. we wonder why

Can't be In two places at one time
I can't even stretch my legs
Without someone pointing a finger at me
Saying you're too big for yourself

Some say the right words. some say it's absurd
To think that children. without food can die
I say It's easy. so very easy
And all we do is wonder why
