The Mavericks – I Want To Know lyrics

I want to know what promises to keep
I wanna know how guilty people sleep
I wanna know if willows really weep
I wanna know where's my reward to reap?
I wanna know why the devil's not wrung dry
I wanna know why politicians lie
I wanna know why nobody gets high
I wanna know why they don't' even try
I wanna know if all you need is love
I wanna know the word from up above
I wanna know what you're thinking of
I wanna know when you have had enough
I wonder why we think we're doing so well
I wonder whether we'll be able to tell

Na na, na na yeah, 6x

I wanna know what it feels like to be king
I wanna know if children, they don't sing
I wanna know if birds should lose their wings
I wanna know if we do anything
I wanna know how we could makes ends meet
I wanna know when I should stomp my feet
I wanna know why history repeats
I wanna know how you turned out so sweet

I wonder why we think we're doing so well
I wonder whether we'll be able to tell
We're waiting for someone to turn on the light
So we won't be (wrong when everything's right?)

Na na, na na yeah 10x
