I want to know why pain makes me stronger
I want to know why good men die
Why am I so afraid of the dark but I stray from the light?

I want to know why You gave me eyes when faith is how I see
And tell me, is it easier to doubt or harder to believe?
Oh there's so many questions stirring in me

And I'm wondering why
Sometimes the truth ain't easy to find
I want to know all the answers
But I'm learning that these things take time
Yeah these things take time

How can success make us feel like failures
And the harder we fall, the harder we try
The more I have, the more I need just to feel like I'm getting by
Oh there's so many questions in one short life

And I'm wondering why
Sometimes the truth ain't easy to find
I want to know all the answers
But I'm learning that these things take time
Yeah, these things take time

And we spend so much time chasing our tails
Hoping to find every last answer to everything in life
So many questions, not enough time

Hey, we all want to understand why
Evil lives and good men die
On the way to Heaven, the truth unwinds
These things take time
These things take time
Yeah, these things take time
