I Wanna Know

When the sun comes up
Where does the night go?
Under the starlight
Why does the moon glow?
If I reach for heaven
Why can’t I touch the sun?
Climb the highest mountain
And wave to everyone?

I wanna know
All life’s mysteries
I wanna ride on the merry-go-round
Listen to the symphony
Is there a plan?
Or are we making it up as we go?
Can somebody tell me?
I wanna know

Through God’s fingertips
Fate falling like dominoes
In every direction
Like a blanket of melting snow
Can we see the reason
Why we keep hanging on?
Never surrender
Until we make it home?

I wanna know
All life’s mysteries
I wanna ride on the merry-go-round
Listen to the symphony
Is there a plan?
Or are we making it up as we go?
Can somebody tell me?
I wanna know

Confusion rules our moral lives
Temptation wracks our souls
Are we just an accident
Or a miracle?

I wanna know
All life’s mysteries
I wanna ride on the merry-go-round
Listen to the symphony
Is there a plan?
Or are we making it up as we go?
Can somebody tell me?
I wanna know
