God Knows Why

Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

Everything I see today
Will someday die and fade away
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

I feel such peace when I let the sand
Drift through the fingers of my empty hand
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

These words can’t explain the beauty of emptiness
Ground of all being
Essence of Mind
From emptiness come all things made manifest
From death to the living
From life we must die

I look back on this empty page
The thoughts come from beyond this brain
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

Thought becomes word
Word becomes being
All things must change
All matter must die
Then thought comes to me from all that I’m seeing
Mirror to mirror
Reflecting through time

I shout my truth into the sky
The Universe says Yes! every time
God knows why
God knows why
I release it and I let it go
For I really don’t have to know why

Everything I see today . . .
. . . will someday die and fade away
