Why God Why

Why does Saigon never sleep at night?
Why does this girl smell of orange trees?
How can I feel good when nothing's right?
Why is she cool when there is no breeze?

You don't give answers, do you, friend?
Just questions that don't ever end

Why god?
Oooh, why today?
I'm all through here, on my way
There's nothing left here that I'll miss
Why send me now a night like this?

Who is the girl in this rusty bed?
Why am I back in a filthy room?
Why is her voice ringing in my head?
Why am I high on her cheap perfume?

Hey look, I mean you no offence
But why does nothing here make sense?

Why god?
Show your hand
Why can't one guy understand?
I've been with girls who knew much more
I never felt confused before

Why me?
What's your plan?
I can't help her, no-one can
I liked my memories as they were
But now I'll leave remembering her

When I went home before
No one talked of the war
What the knew from TV
Didn't have a thing to do with me

I went back and re-upped
Sure, Saigon is corrupt
It felt better to be here driving for the embassy

'Cause here if you can pull a string
A guy like me lives like a king
Just as long as you don't believe anything

Why god?
Why this face?
Why such beauty in this place?
I liked my memories as they were
But now I'll leave remembering her
Just her
