Looking for a reason why


You feel the winds of change; I feel thereís something strange
You see another lie; I see a look in your eye
You need a forty-five; Iím trying just to stay alive
Your words they donít sound right you say that I must see the light
An you say trust in me, I say letís wait and see
You see it in black and white; I can see trouble in sight
Your world seems so sad I donít care if you think Iím mad
Iím trying to understand, Iím looking for a reason why

What are you gonna say when they ask the reason why
You built your walls and now the seeds are sown
What are you gonna do now thereís no place left to hide
Itís too late now you really should have know

Some say it had to be, too many saw the hanging tree
You know right from wrong we heard it all in Billieís song
Sometimes when things ainít right takes a man to see the light
You know it deep inside too many people lied.

So what are you gonna say when they ask the reason why
You built your walls and now the seeds are sown
What are you gonna do now thereís no place left to hide
Itís too late now you really should have know
Youíre on your own
Youíre on your own
Youíre on your own
