(testo e musica David Paich, Steve Lukather, Joseph Williams)
We keep hurting each other when words can’t be easily said
No understanding or reason, just fear and confusion instead
We need hope for the future, and the young need a chance to survive.
No one knows the pain that’s felt by the innocent,
they’re fighting to stay alive,
can no one see the tears in their eyes.
R. Only the children, only the children cry
Only the children, only the children cry.
Why do those who have plenty ignore those with nothing at all
Why must the ones just beginning, stand with their backs to the wall
They keep asking for answers and we keep on telling them lies.
They only want to understand what they feel inside
The hunger that tears them apart,
it’s the one thing they’ve known from the start. R)
