Album: All Rebel Rockers (2008)
all rebel rockers
Tell me why the grass was greener, years ago
I swear it used to grow here
but no more here
Tell me why on this hill all the birds they used to come fly here
come to die here
And tell me why I need to know
sometimes I wish I didn't had to know all you show me

Hey world, what you say
should I stick around for another day or two
don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

Tell me why on the corner all the kids that used to come run here
load the guns here
And tell me why it's okay
to kill in the name of the gods we pray
Tell me who said it's okay
to die in the name of the lies we say
Tell me why there's child soldiers
Tell me why they closed the borders
Tell me how to fight disease
And tell me now won't you please

The only thing I want to do
is to be in the arms of someone who believes in me
like I believe in you

And I say:
Hey world, what you say
should I stick around for another day
Hey world, what you say
should I stick around for another day
Hey world, what you say
should I stick around for another day or two
don't give up on me, I won't give up

I try try try try
I try try try try for you
Don't give up on me

And I cry cry cry cry
I cry cry cry cry for you
Just believe in me
like I believe in you ...
