lyrics

So about 70-or-so years ago
This little young boy wanted to know
How to fly

Oh he had dreams to see
The highest point that could be
So he learned, he worked
And the world still turned

But some people
Out there hurt
So he went and was drafted first
And he asked

Why
Do we care
About going to where
They hurt, they hide
Oh captain why

"It's only fair
If someone cares
Why not us
We have a magic touch
Oh why not us"

So they worked, they hurt
And the world still turned
And he flew over the maps
He once drew
And he knew
He would not make it through
To the end
Just like his friends

Oh Why
Do we care
About going to where
They hurt, they hide
Oh captain why

Oh he tried as he might
But he couldn't make it through
And they cried
When they heard
Because oh it hurt

And the world still turned

Why
Do we care
About going to where
They kill, they hide
Oh Edmund why

Oh Edmund

Don't forget to say goodbye
When you fly
Higher than high...
