Why They Cry

After the war, he was home at last, and then, he cried
She just got the news, she was cancer-free , but then, she cried

I never knew much about anything
But I know eyes don't lie
I ​thought they would have been so happy
But this I just didn't understand


So I asked why they cry
After the sorrow
I asked them why they cry
They said tomorrow
May never come
So they are thankful, for today


Holding the award, he thanked God first, and then, he cried
Someone gave her a blanket and food, but then, she cried

I never knew ​what makes the world go around
But I know eyes don't lie
I know nothing comes from nothing
But this I just didn't understand


So I asked why they cry
After the sorrow
I asked them why they cry
They said tomorrow 
May never come
So they are thankful, for today


I can see it's a miracle
That you and I are here
I can see if we're thankful

We'll finally understand

Why they cry


So I asked why they cry
After the sorrow
I asked them why they cry
They said tomorrow 
May never come
So they are thankful, for today
