TELL ME WHY

A dear friend posted this video to my Facebook Timeline yesterday.

As I researched about it to post today, I realized that this event took place 13 years ago.

We see that our world reality hasn’t changed since then.

If anything, it’s gotten worse.

The lyrics apply today as much as they did back then.

Can anyone tell me why?

~Guinness World Record~

On 9 December 2002, the largest choir in history, drawn from all parts of the UK and Ireland, joined Declan to sing ‘Tell Me Why‘ for a Guinness World Record. The event was organized by ‘Young Voices in Concert‘.

Funds from the record-breaking attempt were donated to the Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

LYRICS

In my dream, children sing
a song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue
and fields are green
and laughter is the language of the world
Then I wake and all I see,
is a world full of people in need

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Everyday I ask myself,
what will I have to do to be a man?
Do I have to stand and fight,
to prove to everybody who I am?
Is this what my life is for,
to waste in a world full of war?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(children) tell me why? (Declan) tell me why?
(together) just tell me why, why, why?

Chorus
Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand
When so many need somebody,
we don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why?

Chorus
(why, why, does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why, why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why, why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?
(why, why do we say we care)
Tell me why (why, why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why, why do the dolphin cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?
(why, why if we’re all the same)
Tell me why (why, why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why, why does it never end)
Can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

(why, why do we close our eyes?)
(why, why do the greedy lie?)
(why, why do we fight for land?)
(can someone tell us why cos we don’t understand?)
(why, why?)
