lyrics

SEARCHING FOR WHY
Brian Gardy / Joe Lydon / Greg Trooper

Here I am searching for why
Why am I feeling this way
I’ll forgive you right here and now
But can’t forgive my own mistakes

I’ve seen things no one should seen
I’ve done things no one should do
Why is the world built this way
I can’t find an answer can you

Maybe just maybe I can
Unlock this pain inside
If I lend a helping hand
To someone else lost wondering why

A young innocent girl is gone
Nothing can bring her back
My rucksack is heavier now
Then it was when I left for Iraq

She was just coming to say goodbye
Never saw her step behind my Humvee
Until I can figure out why
From this pain I’ll never be free

Maybe just maybe I can
Unlock this pain inside
If I lend a helping hand
To someone else lost wondering why

I’m walking around and around
It’s time to start moving ahead
It’s time to stop looking for why
And look for forgiveness instead

Here I am, searching for why
