Written during an especially hard, emotionally taxing week.

lyrics

WHY? / Why, oh why? / Do little children have to die? / If I had the answers it might be easier to take / But why, oh why? / There’s nothing like a daughter’s kiss / There’s nothing like a baby’s cry / The thought of losin’ a little one seems like more than I can take / But why, oh why? / The Lord He giveth / The Lord He takes away - He takes away / and we never know the day / So many questions / I want to run away from the pain / But I can’t run away / Little faces in my dreams / Then the little faces fade away / The Lord He loves His children but I watch them fade away / Why, oh why? / CHORUS //
