  • You keep on walking so you don't fall down
    It's the same old story
    You keep on hiding so you can't be found
    It's the same old story
    Oh but I know you, you're the one who ran
    You know why, it's because you can, oh
    It's alright, 'cause I don't mind
    I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why
    Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

    My friends keep falling and they can't get up
    It's the same old story
    Well one says white and the other one black
    It's the same old story
    And I don't know why you keep emotions walled up
    Your heart's on your sleeve, but your sleeve is rolled up
    But it's alright, 'cause I don't mind
    I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why
    Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

    Things can change, from a misunderstanding
    Nobody talks, nobody hears, oh oh oh
    Makes me wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

    You keep on looking for that higher ground
    It's the same old story
    Your glass is empty and the chips are down
    It's the same old story
    But I don't know why, your emotions walled up
    Your heart's on your sleeve, but your sleeve is rolled up
    But it's alright, 'cause I don't mind
    I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why

    Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
    Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore Writer/s: Daryl Stuermer, Phil Collins
