Only The Children Lyrics by Toto

Only The Children Lyrics

    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

    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

    Chorus - (only the children cry)

    (instrumental break)

    Chorus repeats ...
