    "Tell Me Why"

    [INTRO] - Why, why, why, why, why. Why


    I really wish I could explain it baby (why),
    It's just the world is kinda crazy baby (why),
    Ain't no pretty way to paint it baby (why),
    Don't cry, dry your eyes
    September 11th, I woke up about 7am, west coast time, French toast and my
    Turkey bacon, taking my time, awakin', turning my TV on
    To my surprise, saw what everybody in the world saw
    Me & my children, images were chillin'
    My son said, "Daddy were there people in that building?"
    A cold sweat, frozen with a lump in my chest
    I heard his question, couldn't bring my lips to say "Yes" to him
    That night at my son's side, he cried & prayed
    For the one's who died in the World Trade
    His palms to God, seeds and qualms with God
    He just kept on pressin' me, wanna know why
    Then one week later our bombs were dropped
    We seein' them on CNN, they just won't stop
    The infrared images of brutal attack
    He said, "Daddy now we killin' em back"; (right, right)

    [CHORUS - (2x)]

    [BRIDGE - Mary J. Blige:]
    Mmmmm, souls are captured
    Dreams are stolen, hearts are broken
    Evil blatantly rewarded
    Hate surrenders, Love exalted
    Hope elated, negativity is shorted
    Why is the bomb always getting the last word
    & why did her uncle have to molest her
    & why did all them cops have to be shootin' to kill
    & why did all them priests have to act so ill
    Tell me why did James Byrd Jr. have to be touched
    Tell me why did Malcolm & Martin depart from us
    Tell me why did that sniper make the little boy shoot
    & why does human life always denied for loot
    Tell me why did Mandela have to live in a cage
    Why did my brother Sterling have to die at that age
    Tell me why did Reginald Denny deserve his fate
    & why the f*@k can't love seem to defeat hate
    Tell me why is it so hard for all the children to eat
    Why did Pac & Biggie Smalls have to fall in the street
    Tell me why did Jam Master Jay have to go that way
    Please what am I supposed to say to my kids when they say 'Why?'

    [CHORUS - (2x)]

    [VERSE 3]
    Can't explain it baby, life is just really crazy
    I mean if it's world wars or the life of a little baby
    We got more stores than they got rice under Buddha lazy
    You live four scores & still it be driving you crazy
    But for me I try to see the bright side
    Sometimes it'd be like the goodness be tryin' to hide
    Then try to flee, but it can't it's deep inside
    Sweetie, you be the light for the others, make 'em believe in God

    [BRIDGE - Mary J. Blige:]
