Tell me why you hate me please?
Is it because I am Gay?
What have I ever done to make you hate me so?
Do you think I chose to be Gay, do you really?
I had no choice I was born this way no matter what you think.
Do you think I would choose to be ridiculed, spat upon, reviled, beat up
or even killed.
Did you choose to be straight, no I don't think so;
you were born straight just like I was born gay.
Did you really think one morning I just woke up and
thought I am going to be Gay and find a Boyfriend.
Do you really believe that is what happened?
I want what you want; to love and be loved.
Who or what I am is not a choice, it is a natural occurrence
of being born.
Why won't you just leave me alone and let me live in peace?
I don't beat you up or ridicule you for being straight now do I?
I didn't think so!
If your god created all the life on earth in his image then he created me,
just as he created you.
Your god also doesn't make mistakes either according to you;
so how can you call me a mistake?
Gay or straight, black or white well all have only one planet to
live on, tell me why we can't live on it in peace.
Please tell me why?

Tell Me Why
© Declan Galbraith

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?

Everyday 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?

(children) tell me why? (declan) tell me why?
(children) tell me why? (declan) tell me why?
(together) just tell me 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) cos 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 say we care)
Tell me why (why,why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why,why do the dolphins cry)
Can some one 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 some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?
