Lyrics

If you've got the whole world in your hands
And this is really what you've planned
Well I've turned the pages, read the words in red
I still don't understand

Sat on the front row but I can't hear
Opened every window but it's still not clear
Asked for forgiveness, restoration for my soul
But I'm full of fear

I know I've seen an angel
I know it made me cry
So when I look at heaven
Why do I keep asking why

Well I know the sun comes from the east
Can't see the wind but I've seen it move the trees
I'da moved a mountain with the hours I spent praying
Down here on my knees

I know I've seen an angel
I know it made me cry
So when I look at heaven
Why do I keep asking why

The answer's just a whisper
And flickers in the night
So when I look at heaven
Why do I keep asking why

And when I reach that golden road
All of the answers to my questions will be told
I don't blame the garden or the apple that we took
I did the best I could

I know I've seen an angel
I know it made me cry
So when I look at heaven
Why do I keep asking why

The answer's just a whisper
And flickers in the night
So when I look at heaven
Why do I keep asking why
Keep asking why
Keep asking why
Keep asking why, why, why

Keep asking why
Keep asking why
Keep asking why
Keep asking why, why, why
