Why was roads
that diverge
ever invented
I wonder
Why was houses
without doors
ever built
I wonder
Why did you
cease to be
my sister
I wonder

Chorus:

Loneliness I wish you didn’t
know my door
I wish you’d never, never,
never call
but you do
and then my heart aches
and all my dreams break
and it’s so hard
to be sure

Why was kings
taught to
rule
I wonder
Why was man
to claim something
to be his own
I wonder
When did you
cease to be
my brother
I wonder

Repeat Chorus

Since you hear
I take it so
my endless prayers
have reached to you…

Since you hear
I take it so
my endless prayers
have reached to you…

Repeat Chorus

When did we
walk in different
directions
I can’t remember
When did we
agree to spill
the blood
of sisters and brothers
When did we
begin the need
of a law
for sisters and brothers

Repeat Chorus

Since you hear …
what more you can
but listen to
not enhanced
I’m begging you
imprisoned
wasn’t my
envisioned
destiny

Since you hear …
what all you care
wouldn’t you listen to
my lonely prayer
oh, please, please do
the years have gone
I have no hope
at least you come
and untie my ropes
don’t turn me down
I am too weak
I wear the crown
I know you seek

Since you hear
I take it so
my endless prayers
have reached your ears
Since you hear …
