Why? [Song]

An old acquaintance who was becoming a friend, and who wrote more than a few humankind songs in his life, inspired me to quickly pen this song, this morning, as it passed by. This song took about five minutes to write. The message was clear, I think. (Friends, feel free to Share.)

Why?

I can’t tell you about the stocks in China,
I can’t tell you ’bout the political lie.
 I can’t tell you about the hurting children.
I can’t start to know all the reasons why.
 Why we steal and loot from the needy
And we give the goods into the rich man’s hand.
 Why we mow the forest for another reason
Why we fan the flames and thus pollute the land.
[Chorus]
I just can’t tell you why
(I can’t tell you why)
I just can’t tell you why.
(I can’t tell you why)
It seems a shame to kill one another.
Seems a sin to disregard the grace
We’ve been given to love one another,
All in the name of a fallen race.
Why can’t we stop the world and reset our hearts?
Why can’t we make a one world march?
 To a goal with one foundation
To a goal of always mending hearts.
 Why do we not love one another?
Why do we not love ourselves?
 [Chorus]
I just can’t tell you why
(I can’t tell you why)
I just can’t tell you why.
(I can’t tell you why)
 No, I just can’t tell you why.
I just can’t tell you why.
