Radio XLIL, side A, track 3: “Tell Me Why” by Expose

Expose - Tell Me WhyOh, Expose, I absolutely hate this song.  With a passion.  It’s about the dumbest song I’ve ever heard.  This song is pretty much why I absolutely loathe you as a musical group.  You want me to tell you why?  First, you tell me why you even made this song.

April Fool’s!!!

That got kinda angry and vindictive, didn’t it, Expose?  Sorry about that.  It’s supposed to be lighthearted, but I guess my idea of a joke might be a little darker than I realized.  Although I’m sure you saw right through it since you know how much I love you.  What’s funnier is that I guarantee that I’m going to fall for something hard today.  A couple years ago I fell for an article that said George Romero died.  Like reeeally fell for it.  And since I don’t actually look at the internet that much, I didn’t find out it wasn’t true for like six months, and only after I wrote a post about “The Walking Dead” for our in-house blog at work and talked about how great George Romero was and how sad I was that he was dead.  Someone had to comment on the article to tell me that he was alive.  It was embarrassing.  So I’ll let you know what I fall for today, Expose.  Besides falling for you, that is.  And that’s no joke.

“Tell Me Why”

(Oh, oh oh oh)

(Oh, oh oh oh)

Echoes
Thunder
Almost every night

Why this
Prison
If we’re all aliiiike

Look a-
Round you
Look at all yo friends

Tell me
Are they
Just what they preteeend

Listen to my story (listen to my story)
If you have the time (oooooo)
Yes, we’ll make the difference
If we really tryyy
Listen, everybody (listen, everybody)
Start to make it right (oooooo)
One and all together
Feel it from insiiide

Tell me why

It echoes every night

Why we fight

Just to find who’s wrong or right

Don’t let it slide

You can’t run and hide

Tell me why, oh, wonchoo please tell me why

(Oh, oh oh oh)

(Oh, oh oh oh)

Give me
Reason
All this senseless crime

We can
Change it
Why’d they have to diiie

Think of
The children
Tomorrow’s their future

Don’t make
Them feel
It’s just another day

Tell me, anybody (tell me, anybody)
why can’t we live together (oooooo)
End all the fighting
Erase it all forevaaaahhh

Listen fo this reason (listen fo this reason)
Before it gets too laaaate (oooooo)
Soon, there will be no one
No one left to haaate yeah

Tell me why

It echoes every niiiiight

Why we fight

Just to find who’s wrong or right

Don’t let it slide

You can’t run and hiiiiide

Can’t run and hiiiiide
(Tell me why, oh, wonchoo please tell me why)

Games are not
Where it’s at
Give it up
No time for that
Imagine people, hand in hand
No more fighting in this land
Red (oh, oh oh oh)
Yellow
Black or white
Colors don’t make up what’s right
Come with me
And see the light
We can start the peace tonight
Make the music fill yo life (oh, oh oh oh)
Now’s the time to realize
Don’t be livin’ (oh, oh oh oh)
In a lie
Canchoo hear the people’s cryyyyyy

So tell me
(Tell me why)

(It echoes every night)
It echoes every night
