‘Why On Earth’…by Sandy Jones and Peter Linesman

Posted: February 27, 2011 in Uncategorized

This song was used as one of the songs on the World Vision compilation CD in 2004.

I have no idea if it makes sence to post a song on ‘wordpress’ however my son is on ‘reading week’ from university and helping me (…not for free, lazy bum) with alot of ‘stuff’ online. He insists its a good idea and is moving fast so …won’t keep doing this.

However, I’ll type out the lyrics for this song since someone kindly asked for them.

WHY ON EARTH

we are all deserving, not just a few

no one among us would ever choose (*i actually wrote ‘consciously choose’)

a life of hard times , without escape

given the choice and a chance to heal

broken wings can learn to fly

CHORUS     under the stars, we share a home

why do so many feel so alone,

do you ever wonder what keeps us apart,

when heaven has room for every heart

why on earth?

VERSE

when the light of love shines

in the eyes of every child

we’ll know we have begun to embrace this world as one

hve we forgotten, time is running out

on so many, so many miles away

what a difference our love can make

CHORUS

under the stars, we share a home

why do so many feel so alone,

do you ever wonder what keeps us apart,

when heaven has room for every heart

why on earth?

BRIDGE

we are all god’s children, each and every one

not just the chosen few who always have enough

bank account, boarder lines, dividing mankind

some of us can’t live

between these lines

CHORUS

under the stars, we share a home

why do so many feel so alone,

do you ever wonder what keeps us apart,

when heaven has room for every heart

why on earth?
