Why do we do the things we do

How can we sing
When there seems no reason to
How do we smile
When there's not much to smile about

When the world is down
Who are we to stand and shout
And they wonder why
We do the things we do

It's all because of this
It's all because of this
We've tasted love, tasted hope
Tasted holiness

It's all because of this
It's all because of this
We've tasted love, tasted hope
Tasted holiness

They wonder why
We do the things we do
