Hey World


Michael Franti & Spearhead –
Hey World (Don’t Give Up Version)

tell me why the grass was greener
year ago
I swear it used to grow here
but no more here

tell me why
on this hill
all the birds they used to come to fly here
come to die here

and tell my why i need to know
sometimes i wish i didn’t have to know
all you show me

hey world
what you say
should i stick around for another day or two
don’t give up on me
i won’t give up on you
just believe in me like i believe in

tell me why on the corner
all the kids that used to come to run here
load the guns here
and tell me why
it’s okay
to kill in the name of the gods we pray

tell me who said it’s okay
to die in the name of the lies we say
tell me why there’s child soldiers
tell me why they closed the borders
tell me how to fight disease
and tell me now won’t you please

the only thing i want to do
is to be in the arms of someone who believes in me
like i believe in you
i try try try try
i try try try try for you
don’t give up on me
and i cry cry cry cry
i cry cry cry cry for you
just believe in me
like i believe in you
