Track Name: Why Do We Do This?
I’m a natural man
Can tell when I’ve been crying
As honest as I can in the land of the lying
Don’t take it from me that I know what I’m doing
I bruise so easily that I wonder what I’m doing here
In the land of the strong
But if I hold on I might find someone

If I was a star I could form a constellation
But down here it’s so hard - no use in preparation
Do we wait and see if there’s anybody out there?
I know I believe
And I wonder if she’s watching me while I’m singing this tune
Why cant she find me?
We’re all under the moon

Why – why do we do this to ourselves?
Why do we do this at all?
Why – why do we do this ‘one-to-one’
Is it the only way?
We’ve each enough love for us all

I’m a magic man
Can’t tell but I’m in fear
With a sleight of hand I make people disappear
I’d show you how it’s done but I don’t know what I’m doing
One false move and gone
I’m here alone now and it’s funny how
In this land of the strong
You can only be strong if you’ve got someone
