I Don't Understand
From: Hootie & the Blowfish EP (1991)

It's a mystery to me
I don't understand
No one lives next door
No one can
Now the street's a mess
I can't go there
My skin's the wrong color
So is my hair
I see a broken man
I'll help him if I can

But I just don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand at all

It's different to me
And it's going around From L.A. to N.Y.C.
And any other small town
Look who lived there before
Where are they now?
They rode the rails and the roads
Got out of town
I see a polluted land
I'll clean it if I can

But I just don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand at all

There's a car with a doll
And a car you can call?
There's a lady over there with no car at all
There's a kid riding someone else's bike
And the people at the old folks' home
Who like to talk and walk away
We adopt this place and its people
As our second home
We live in peace with its people
But we're living alone
They take from us our possessions
And that makes us upset
They take our youth and creations
That we can't forgive or forget
It's time to take a stand
I'll do it if I can

But I just don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand at all
And I don't know why I called
