Testo tell me why - genesis

Mothers crying in the street

Children dying at their feet
tell me why

People starving everywhere

There's too much food but none to spare
tell me why



Can you see that shaft of sunlight

can you see it in my eyes

I can feel the fire that's burning

anger and hope so deep

so deep within my heart before my eyes

for some it's too late

it seems there's no-one listening



People sleeping in the streets

no roof above
no food to eat
tell me why



If there's 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 there's no-one listening



Who would think it still could happen

even in this time and place

politicians
they may save themselves

but they won't save their face

just hope against hope it's not too late



You say there's nothing you can do

is there one rule for them and one for you


tell me why



Listen can you see that shaft of sunlight

can you see it in my eyes

I can feel the fire that's burning

anger and hope so deep

so deep within my heart before my eyes

for some it's too late

it seems there's no-one listening



Hurry for me
hurry for me
they cry
