We keep hurting each other when words can't be easily said
No understanding or reason, just fear and confusion instead
We need hope for the future, and the young need a chance to survive
No one knows the pain that's felt by the innocent, they're
Fighting to stay alive, can no one see the tears in their eyes

[Chorus:]
Only the children, only the children cry, only the children

Why do those who have plenty ignore those with nothing at all
Why must the ones just beginning, stand with their backs to the wall
They keep asking for answers and we keep on telling them lies
They only want to understand what they feel inside
The hunger that tears them apart
It's the one thing they've known from the start

Written by: JOSEPH STANLEY WILLIAMS, DAVID PAICH, STEVEN LEE LUKATHER
