Why Nicole Nordeman Lyrics...

We rode into town the other day

Just me and my daddy

He said I'd finally reached that age

And I could ride next to him on a horse

That of course was not quite as wide

We heard a crowd of people shouting

And so we stopped to find out why

And there was that man that my dad said he loved

But today there was fear in his eyes

So I said daddy why are they screaming

Why are the faces of some of them beaming?

Why is he dressed in that bright purple robe?

I'll bet that crown hurts him more then he shows

Daddy please can't you do something?

He looks as though he's gonna cry

You said he was stronger then all of those guys

Daddy please tell me why?

Why does everyone want him to die?

Later that day the sky grew cloudy

And daddy said I should go inside

Somehow he knew things would get stormy

Boy was he right

But I could not keep from wondering

If there was something he had to hide

So after he left I had to find out

I was not afraid of getting lost

So I followed the crowds

To a hill where I knew men had been killed

And I heard a voice come from the cross

And it said father why are they screaming?

Why are the faces of some of them beaming?

Why are they casting their lots for my clothes?

This crown of thorns hurts me more then it shows

Father please can't you do something?

I know that you must hear my cry's

I thought I could handle a cross of this size

Father remind me why?

Why does everyone want me to die?
