WHY DO YOU SING
Lyrics and music by Beverly Graham ©

REFRAIN
Why do you sing girl why do you play
What is the meaning of the words that you say
Why do you wander why do you roam will you soon be coming home

When I was younger when I was a girl I used to sing songs about peace in the world
The songs became empty the meaning soon passed like water drained from a glass
Always a seeker of truth so it seems always have been one to follow my dreams
The source of my dreaming soon became obscure
The course of my life unsure

REFRAIN

Many a man I have known in my time
Many a word I have put to a rhyme
Always pursing the illusion of life
thinking only love would make me a very fine wife
But love as you know is often times blind to the workings and hurtings of the human mind
And sometimes we reach out and sometimes we hide
then he bury the feelings after they have died

REFRAIN

Music like loving needs nurture and care and sometime is open like a soul that lies bare
And sometimes a melody's heart can be torn
But just as in life a song must be born
And somehow a glimmering light shown through
Bringing new hope to what I though once true
Changing perspective on the things that I do
Now I sing all my songs just for you

Then why do you sing girl
Why do you play
What is the meaning of the words that you say
Why do you wander why do you roam
Don't you know girl that you have come home
