Why Are You Away | A Song Donated to the Efforts of UNICEF®

“Why Are You Away” ©2016 Anka Yura/Laetoli Music(ASCAP)

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
