It's no secret; somebody waits at home for you,
And I know how hard it seems for you to do.
So if you really believe this love is so wrong,
We don't have to carry on.
But still I wonder:
Why does it have to be wrong or right?
Why does it have to be one way or the other?
Won't somebody please, please tell me.
Why does it have to be black or white?
Why do we have to hurt one to love another?
Oh, tell me why?
Why does it have to be?

Can't say that you didn't know where this might lead.
And I know I couldn't have been that hard to read.
But we both know this is not where you belong.
There's no need to carry on,
Ah, but I can't help but wonder:

Why does it have to be wrong or right?
Why does it have to be one way or the other?
Won't somebody please, please tell me.
Why does it have to be black or white?
Why do we have to hurt one to love another?
Oh, tell me why?
Why does it have to be?

Why does it have to be wrong or right?
Why does it have to be one way or the other?
(Won't somebody please.)
Won't somebody please, please tell me.
Why does it have to be black or white?
Why do we have to hurt one to love another?
(Oh, tell me.)
(Oh, tell me.)
Oh, tell me why?

Oh, tell me why does it have to be wrong or right?
Why does it have to be one way or the other?
Won't somebody please, please tell me.
Why does it have to be black or white?
Why do we have to hurt one to love another?
(Oh, tell me.)
Oh, tell me why?

To Fade.

(Oh, tell me.)
Why does it have to be wrong or right?
Why does it have to be one way or the other?
Won't somebody please, please tell me.
Why does it have to be black or white?
Why do we have to hurt one to love another?
