Hey World

This is one of my favorite Michael Franti Songs.

Tell me why the grass was greener,
Years ago, I swear, it used to grow here,
But no more here.

Tell me why on this hill,
All the birds they used to come to fly here,
Come to die here.

Tell me why I need to know,
Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to know
All you’ve shown me.

Hey world, what you say,
Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don’t give up on me, I won’t give up on you.
Just believe in me like I believe in you.

Tell me why, on the corner,
All the kids that used to come to run here,
Load their guns here.

And tell me why it’s okay to kill in the name of the Gods we pray,
Tell me who said it’s okay to die in the name of the lies we say,
Tell me why there’s child soldiers,
Tell me why they close the borders,
Tell me how to fight disease, and
Tell me now, won’t you please

The only thing I want to do
Is to be in the arms of someone who
Believes in me, like I believe in you

And I say
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say,
Should I stick for around for another day or two?

Don’t give up on me, I won’t give up
And I try, try, try, try,
I try, try, try, try,
On you
Don’t give up on me
And I cry, cry, cry, cry,
I cry, cry, cry, cry,
You
Just believe in me like I believe

Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day or two?

Don’t give up on me, I won’t give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

Don’t give up on me

Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say?
