Jean Michel Jarre & Yello – Why This, Why That And Why

When i was thrown into this planet
I knew what’s going on
I was messing with my pacifier
All day long

Oh and i then i was twenty
And i didn’t have a clue
I was messing with my days
Trying to be true
Trying to dig out

The man that i could be
I was shouting loud to find this little me
He was stumbling through his days
What else then could he try
Looking for an answer

Why this ?
Why that ?
And why ?

Oh and i then i was thirty
I thought i knew what it was all about
Cruising in the river
Like a silver trout
Swimming in the ocean
Respected by the sharks
Overnight the ocean turned out to be
Too dark

When i was diving deeper
There was no light no more
I couldn’t find the way out
The ocean has no door
And all the things that happened to pretty desperate guy
Leading to the question

Why this ?
Why that ?
And why ?

I started to shout louder
What is this all about ?
Struggling up the river
Not even half-way proud
For all the things that happened to this pretty desperate guy
Who was looking for an answer

Why this ?
Whay that ?
And why ?
