  • It make no sense to me
    I was living in a different world today
    When I heard the news

    I keep on having the same bad dream
    And it makes me wanna hurt all the people
    Who have done this thing to you

    when I see your face
    I can see you smile
    I read all about you in the new york times

    when I see your eyes
    I can see your life
    When I think about what happened
    It just makes me crazy

    this makes no sense to me yeah
    This eye for an eye thing
    It has gone too far
    I don't know anyone who does not hurt inside
    I would like to believe that we can learn from this
    And maybe some day
    Make things right

    I wanna believe in this world
    I wanna believe in this life
    I wanna believe in a world
    That does not seem real
    When I read between the lines

    when I see your face
    I can see you smile
    I read all about you in the new york times

    when I see your eyes
    I can see your life
    When I read the words about you
    It just makes me crazy

    I wanna believe in this world
    I wanna believe in this life
    I wanna believe in a world
    That does not seem real
    When I read between the lines

    you got to read between the lines

    you got to read between the lines

    I really wanna believe...
    I can make things right

    I wanna believe I can learn
    How feel all right inside

    I wanna believe I can learn
    How to make things right
    I wanna believe in this world
    I wanna believe in this life
    I wanna believe in a world that does not seem real
    When I read the new york times

    I see your face
    I can see you smile
    I read all about you in the new york times

    I can see your eyes
    I can see your life
    When I think about what happened it just makes me crazy

    when I close my eyes... you seem so alive
    When I think about you
    I wanna believe... we can make things right

    I wanna believe
    (I wanna believe)

    I wanna believe in this world
    I wanna believe in this life
    I wanna believe in a world that does not seem real
