What is the story behind “Why Are You Away?”
Dedicated to UNICEF and its staff whose tireless efforts help children around the world. The story behind the song is very simple. I’ve been involved in US Fund for UNICEF work for almost for four years now. I’m a member of UNICEF next generation as well. I admire their work for helping children around the world. That’s why I thought I could write a song for them to cherish their day to day activities, specifically about UNICEF raising questions in regards to what’s good for children.
Lyrics: VERSE 1 When we came into this world We were the same When we leave this earth We’re gonna be the same And what changed you Why are you not helping And what changed you Why are you not caring PRE-CHORUS Did money change your heart To make you look different Did power sell your soul To make you look distinct CHORUS Why are you away Why are you away Why are you away Why are you away from us VERSE 2 When you reached your goal What caused your blindness While you are holding power What made you so careless And why won’t you look back at Where you came from And why don’t you say something When there’s so much suffering PRE-CHORUS CHORUS BRIDGE Wish I were you I could help Wish i were you i would change The nature used to be greener The ocean used to be cleaner The forest used to be thicker And peace used to be everywhere PRE-CHORUS Did money change your heart To make you so careless Did power blur your vision To make you so blind to see CHORUS
