Cody Simpson & The Tide – Tell Me Why (Audio)

Lyrics to “Tell Me Why” performed by Cody Simpson & The Tide

Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t laughing, but you do not cry
Cry for the young man who’s fighting for your mind
Cry for the old man who’s just past his time

Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Oh, tell me why

Tell me why the leaves, well, they fall with your breath
And if the leaves don’t fall when they leave your breath to rest
Your rebellion puts you up to test
To the nation for evaluation watching wild with their radio station
Now I’m done playing the game, oh, yeah
Just searching for shading with the tide with your tired mind
Put your breakup to the side

Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t laughing, but you do not cry
Cry for the young man who’s fighting for your mind
Cry for the old man who’s just past his time
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
You do not..

Die with the masked man, the gasman, the tax man
He’s putting taxes on tax, man, while reaching out with the wrong hand
Singing to the systematic static television addict
Sitting under your attic, can’t seem to see all the plastic in the water, babe
You wouldn’t want that for your daughter, babe
It’s single logical .. make ’em logical ..
Forget what you’ve learned, that you knew that I .. for you

Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t laughing, but you do not cry
Cry for the young man who’s fighting for your mind
Cry for the old man who’s just past his time
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
(1, 2, 3, 4)

Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t laughing, but you do not cry
Cry for the young man who’s fighting for your mind
Cry for the old man who’s just past his time
Tell me why, tell me why
You ain’t living, but you do not die
Oh, tell me why…
