Wondering Why
Lyrics
Wonderin' Why

Wonderin' why the sky is blue, and why I feel better when I'm with you,
why do the birds start flying south all together right on cue?
Wonderin' how a snowdrop grows, or if there's a road into just suppose...
Is there a pattern in a palm, or a riddle in a rose?

I need to know, does the dream go on forever?
Does every question have to have an answer?
Is it true the more we learn the less we know?
Why I watch the river flow - and sit here...

Wonderin' when the pictures come, that I can look inwards and see the sun...
Am I a part of what it is, is it somehow what I am?
Wonderin' at the worlds that rise, and burn in the dark when I close my eyes,
are they the face of truth unmasked or just masters of disguise?

I need to know, does the dream go on forever?
Does every question have to have an answer?
Is it true the more we learn the less we know?
Why I watch the river flow - and sit here...

Wondering if what is is true... How I can see I and yet not see who...
How come we know we know we know, that we don't know, when we do?
Wonderin' whether God's above, or if we just made her up because,
we need to feel that there's some point, to all these questions that we have...

I need to know, does the dream go on forever?
Does every question have to have an answer?
Is it true the more we learn the less we know?
Why I watch the river flow - and sit here... Wonderin' why...
