"People Asking Why" as written by Joseph Anthony Fiddler and Seal,....
Why, am I changing?
Why do people, get complacent with the things they're told?
World disasters they come and go.
I'd give anything just to be back home.
'Cause there are people, asking why.
There are people, who believe in

In life, gets confusing but I don't know why.
But I've made my plans already.
Had this trouble with it all my life.
Well world disasters, they come and go.
I'd give all my strength to be back home
'Cause there are people, asking why
There are people asking

How do I get to where I've come from, now?
How will I paint this garden I've destroyed, green?
Can I get back to where I've come from?
'Cause there are people, who believe in life.

Well how do we get to where we come from?
Peace and love ain't enough these days.
Evolution says "Time is running out,
We've been here too long..."

'Cause there are people, asking, why?
Ayea, no-hoo

Oh, there are people, asking
Ayea

How do I get to where I've come from, now?
How will I paint this garden I've destroyed, green?
Can I get back to where I come from?
'Cause there are people, who believe it.

How do I get to where I've come from, now?
How do I paint this garden I've destroyed, green?
Can I get back to where I've come from?
'Cause there are people, who believe it

How do I get to where I've come from, now?
How will I paint this garden I've destroyed, green?
Can I get back to where I've come from?
'Cause there are people, who believe it

How can I get back to where I've come from, now?
How do I get back to where I've come from, now?

How will I paint this garden I've

    General CommentThis song speaks to a little more than a broken relationship!

    The song is about how earth is F'd up and what can he do?

    General CommentThis has always invoked an image of a relationship where something bad has happened. The speaker's real question is can he get the relationship back to the precatastrophic state. The comment "world disasters, they come and go" shows the speaker's (perhaps) skewed perspective of the problem compared to the rest of life.

    "'Cause there are people, who believe in life." gives the whole song a positive feel....

    General CommentThis was written from the perspective of a man who's gone through many changes throughout the course of his life. The man he used to be is not the man that he is; experience distinguishes the two (the man he used to be from the man he is today). He's changed and home isn't the same place that it was yesterday. So how does he get back to that place, to the forgotten memories of the past? If home is where the heart is, then is that place, today, the same it was yesterday? Things change and neither man, his feeling, nor his assessment of home is an exception to that rule. What this perspective offers is a twist to the adage that is to "forget where you come from."

    General CommentIn this song the perspective admits that he has (forgotten where he's come from). And to the people asking why he's changed, to the people who believe in life's consistency, he has no legitimate answer other than "I've changed." And so he asks himself, "why?" The song is this man's introspection, here we see in his thoughts a guilty sense of responsibility brought on by his inability to be who he was. They've say, "you've changed," that "you're different." They want to know "why?" How could you have not.

    My OpinionI believe this song is asking How did we arrive to such as sorry state of affairs and how do we get back to that place where we could do things differently to avoid arriving HERE!
