Tell Me Why
Exposé Lyrics


Echoes thunder. almost every night
Why this prison, if we're all alike
Look around you, look at all your friends
Tell me, are they, just what they pretend

Listen to my story, if you have the time
Yes, we'll make a difference, if you really try
Listen everybody and start to make it right
One and all together, you feel it from inside
Tell me why
It echoes every night
Why we fight
Just to find who's wrong or right
Don't let it slide
You can't run and hide
Tell me why
Oh, won't you please tell me why

Give me a reason, for this senseless crime
We can change it, why'd they have to die
Think of the children, tomorrow's their future
Don't make them feel it's just another day

Tell me anybody, why can't we live together
End all the fighting, erase it all forever
Listen for this reason, before it gets too late
Soon there will be no one, no one left to hate

Tell me why
It echoes every night
Why we fight
Just to find who's wrong or right
Don't let it slide
You can't run and hide
Tell me why
Oh, won't you please tell me why

[Oh oh oh oh]
Won't you tell me, tell me why
[Oh oh oh oh]
Tell me why we fight
[Oh oh oh oh]
Tell me, tell me why
[Oh oh oh oh]
Won't you tell me why we fight

So tell me anybody, why can't we live together
End all the fighting, erase it all forever
Listen for this reason, before it gets too late
Soon there will be no one, no one left to hate

So tell me [tell me why]
[It echoes every night]
It echoes every night
[Why we fight]
So tell me why we fight
[Just to find who's wrong or right]
Just to find who's wrong or right
[Don't let it slide]
Don't let it slide
[You can't run and hide]
Can't run and hide
[Tell me why]
Oh, won't you please tell me why

Tell me [tell me why]
[It echoes every night]
Why it echoes every night
[Why we fight]
So tell me why we fight
[Just to find who's wrong or right]
Just to find who'w wrong or right
[Don't let it slide]
Don't let it slide
[You can't run and hide]
Don't let it slide
[Tell me why]
Oh, won't you please tell me why

Game's are not where it's at
Give it up no time for that
Imagine people hand in hand
No more fighting in this land
Red, yellow, black or white
Color's don't make up what's right
Come with me and see the light
We can start the peace tonight
Let the music fill your life
Now's the time to realize
Don't be livin' in a lie,
Can't you hear the people's cry?
Can't you hear the people's cry?

I love this song from Expose. It stands out. Their other songs are about break-ups and romance. But this one is singing against gang violence and a good message.

BangEm High

It's more than gang violence they are single about, if you actually paid attention. They are talking about people of all races hating each other and how it has to stop before we all die.

sarah palin

One of the best from a multi talented music group ahead of their time 🎵

Monica White

I love Expose. I am 38 yrs old Black American , I can say that the music back in the days had some sense to it. You can relate to what they were saying it has a catchy beat.. I love 80's alternative , soft rock, pop, classical music.

alexandria nguyen

Fantastic voices of the 80's.Expose- Legendary band.

coolsweetgroovy

I love the fact that they captivated their audiences with their clothes on!!!!!!!

Rayna Ferguson

Relevant for today as well. Great song! Love these girls!

Louis Matassa

A great song and it really fits in with all these kids getting shot and killed in chicago.

100domathon

This was there only song out of their 3 albums that was about a social issue and not a song about romance or break-ups. Wish they had done more songs like this. It's powerful

Daron Scates

I know it's just a music video, but they emit such raw emotion that really gives the song more gravitas. This resonates still today, almost 30 years later.
