why does it disappear so fast?
why can't the daylight last?
i guess that's why we sleep
darkness isn't much to see
there's no use staying up at all
and then you start your day
your giving side says "it's okay,
the darkness made it daylight somewhere else,
somewhere else."

we can beg for explanations
no one knows just what to say
someone set this thing in motion
now it happens every day

why can't they stick around?
why are they so soon in the air or underground?
and that's the way it goes
a forest burns, a flower grows
a willow weeps and sighs and weeps again
and it won't live for long
and who knows if that's right or wrong?
it's only making room for what comes next
and what comes next?

we can beg for explanations
no one knows just what to say
someone set this thing in motion
now it happens every day

why does it hurt so much?
why is there so much blood?
but then the crying stops
you grab a towel and dry it off
next thing you know, you're being hugged
and your arms won't stay that way
for every hour of every day
but all you need to know is: this is love
yes, love

we can beg for explanations
no one knows just what to say
someone set this thing in motion
now it happens every day
