Neil Young – Tell Me Why lyrics
Sailing heart-ships
Thru broken harbors
Out on the waves in the night
Still the searcher
Must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright.
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
Arrangements with yourself,
When you're old enough to repay
But young enough to sell?

Tell me lies later,
Come and see me
I'll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me
All in the way that you smile
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
Arrangements with yourself,
When you're old enough to repay
But young enough to sell?

Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me why

    It's about being a young man at the crossroads between hiding himself in a dogma and keeping himself open for development. "it's hard to make arrangements with yourself" at the juncture between boyhood and the man. Hiding behind a dogma can reduce the fright and give life a meaning. It can also be used to hide the truth. Why? Keep asking. Maybe the truth will come of it's own free will.
