What is the saddest song you have ever listened to?

Tell me why by Declan Galbraith.

What this song wants to express is the perplexity of people’s actions, including the indifferent relationship between human and nature, and between people.

Listen carefully to the prelude of the song, you will find that it is mixed with the sound of birds and tides, creating a natural atmosphere. However, what have people done to such an environment? The high pitched melody of the climax is a child’s questioning of the world. Step by step, Tell Me Why is not to find the answer, but to wake up human beings.

Here are the lyrics.

In my dream,

children sing a song of love for every boy and girl .

The sky is blue and 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),

cos‘ 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),

cos’ I don’t understand,

when so many need 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!

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 tiger 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 forest burn?

(Why,why,do we said we care)

Tell me why?

(Why,why,do we stand and stare)

Tell me why?

(why, why, do the dolphins cry)

Can someone tell us why we let the ocean die?

(Why,why,if we’re all the same)

Tell me why?

(Why,why,do we pass the blame)

Tell me why?

(Why,why,does it never end)

Can someone tell us why we can not just be friends?

Why,why,(do we close our eyes)

Why,why,(do the greedy life)

Why,why,(do we fight for land)

Can someone tell us why we don’t understand?

Why,why?!
