Why is the grass always greener over on the other side?
And why does the sound of rain falling makes me feel
Like I wanna cry?
It never seems 2 get easier the more we try
I always find myself just askin' why (Why? Why? Why?)
Why when there should be so much love do we just fuss
And fight?
Oh well
And why can't there be more understanding just between
U and I?
Oh yes

When someone's hurt in love and war, it's never fair
... oh no
My head believes, but my heart can't understand
I wanna know, I really gotta know if this is all there
Is
Then I'll keep lovin'
I'll keep asking why is there just so little time?
(Why? Why?)
I wonder why... oh yeah (Why? Why?)

Somebody tell me (Why?)
Oh, I gotta know (Why?)
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me (Why? Why?)

When someone's hurt in love and war, it's never fair
(Never fair)
My head believes, but my heart can't understand... my
Heart, my heart
I wanna know, I really gotta know if this is all there
Is
Then I'll keep lovin'
I'll keep asking why is it just so little time? (Why?
Why?)
I wonder why... oh why (Why? Why?)

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me (Why? Why?)
Somebody tell me why... oh help me Lord (Why? Why?)
Tell me why (Why?) (Why?)
Why can't we come 2gether? (Why?)
Why can't we love one another? (Why?)
I wanna know
Why can't we love one another?
Oh why?
