LYRICS:

Mothers crying in the street
Children dying at their feet
Tell me why, ooh tell me why
People starving everywhere
Theres too much food, but theres none to spare
Tell me why, oh tell me why

Can you see that shaft of sunlight?
Can you see it in my eyes?
I can feel the fire thats burning
Anger and hope so deep
So deep within my heart
But before my eyes
For some, its too late
It seems theres no-one listening

People sleepin in the streets
No roof above, no food to eat
Tell me why, tell me why
See the questions in their eyes
Listen to their childrens cries
Tell me why, please tell me why

If theres a God, is he watching?
Can he give a ray of hope?
So much pain and so much sorrow
Tell me what does he see
When he looks at you
When he looks at me
What would he say?
It seems theres no-one listening

Who would think it still could happen
Even in this time and place
Politicians, they may save themselves
But they wont save their face
So hope against hope
Its not too late

You say theres nothing you can do
Is there one rule for them and one for you?
Tell me why, just tell me why
Listen

Can you see that shaft of sunlight?
Can you see it in my eyes?
I can feel the fire thats burning
Anger and hope so deep
So deep within my heart
But before my eyes
For some, its too late
It seems theres no-one listening

Hurry for me, hurry for me
Hurry for me, hurry for me
They cry, they cry (repeat and fade)
