"Why's It So Hard" as written by and Anthony Shimkin Shep Pettibone....
Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
(Why's it so hard)
Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love

What do I have to do to be accepted
What do I have to say
What do I have to do to be respected
How do I have to play
What do I have to look like to feel I'm equal
Where do I have to go
What club do I have to join to prove I'm worthy
Who do I have to know

I'm telling you brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) accept that we're different
Well, before (why's so hard) it's too late

What do I have to learn to know what's right for me
What do I have to know
What am I going to do when I feel righteous
Where do I have to go
Who should get to say what I believe in
Who should have the right
What am I going to do with all this anger
Why do I have to fight

I'm telling you brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share love

Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, show your sister how
(Why's it so damn hard)

Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters), what do I have to say
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters), how do I have to play
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters), who should have the right
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters), why do I have to fight

Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother

Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister (why's it so damn hard), love your brother

Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love

(You better believe it, 'lieve it, 'lieve it, 'lieve it

I'm telling you brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers (brothers), sisters (sisters)
Why can't we learn to (why's so hard) accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard

Before it's too late (sing your love)
Before it's too late (sing your love)
Before it's too late (sing your love) uh uh

Love your brother now
Show your sister how
Love your brother now
Show your sister

Love your brother now
Show your sister how
Love your brother now
Show your sister

    Song MeaningAbout the Erotica art piece Why It's So Hard. Well for Lady Madonna, that is a fine Ciccone question to ask! As Madge teaches the lesson plan about loving each other, she is crying that we should all get along because Love is Important. Madonna Cries this song with a marked and deep sadness! I Love Madonna!
