Declan Galbraith-Tell Me Why-a children’s tribute

One of my favorite song by Declan Galbraith-Tell Me Why, a children’s tribute… “Lagu ini terkenal kembali ketika perang di gaza akhir tahun 2008 yang lalu. Lagu ini juga dipersembahkan buat berbagai bencana yang terjadi seperti tsunami, gempa bumi dsb., yang mengorbankan banyak anak-anak. Saya teringat kembali lagi ini ketika melihat korban gempa bumi di Sumetera Barat yang menelan ratusan atau bahkan ribuan korban. Semoga Allah memberi ketabahan bagi para korban dan keluarga atas ujian ini. Semoga bencana ini bukan merupakan hukuman. Ini barangkali adalah ujian dan peringatan dari Allah Swt. dan menumbuhkan rasa solidaritas sesama manusia dimuka bumi. Amiin ya rabbal ‘alamiin.”

Lyrics of Tell Me Why-Declan Galbraith:
In my dreams, Children sing
A song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue, the 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

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) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why

Every day, 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 that what my life is for?
To waste in a world full of war

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) cause I don’t understand
When so many needs somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Tell me why (Tell me why)
Just tell me why (why, why, why)

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) cause I don’t understand
When so many need somebody
We don’t give a helping hand
Tell me why (Why why, does the tigers 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 forests burn

(why why do we say we can?) tell me why
(why why is it still the same?) tell me why
(why why do we talk and run?) tell me why
can someone tell us why we let the ocean die

(why why do we always say?) tell me why
(why why do we pass the blame?) tell me why
(why why does it never rain?)
can someone tell us why we cannot just be friends

(why why do we close our eyes?)
(why why do we really lie?)
(why why do we fight for land?)
can someone tell us why cause we don’t understand
why why?
