Sing Along!
Lyrics to: Five For Fighting singing "The Riddle."
To sing along, scroll
this as the video plays.

Are you ready to sing along?
The music video is starting right now ...

There was a man back in ninety five
whose heart ran out of summers but before he died.
I asked him, "Wait, what's the sense in life?
Come over me.
Come over me."

He said, "Son, why you got to sing that tune?
Catch a Dylan song,
or some eclipse of the moon.
"Let an angel swing
and make you swoon.
Then you will see,
you will see."

Then he said, "Here's a riddle for you.
Find the answer.
"There's a reason for the world, you and I."
Picked up my kid from school today.
"Did you learn anything, 'cos in the world today.
You can't live in a castle far away.
Now talk to me,
come talk to me."

He said, "Dad, I'm big
but we're smaller than small
... in the scheme of things
well, we're nothing at all.
Still every mother's child
sings a lonely song.
So play with me,
come play with me."

And, "Hey Dad, here's a riddle for you.
Find the answer.
There's a reason for the world,
you and I?"

I said, "Son, for all I've told ya'
when you get right down to the reason for the world,
who am I?"

There are secrets that we still have left to find.
There have been mysteries
from the beginning of time.
There are answers we're
not wise enough to see.

He said, "You looking for a clue?
I love you free."

The batter swings and the summer flies,
as I look into my angel's eyes
A song plays on while the moon is hiding.
Over me.
Something comes over me.

I guess we're big and I guess we're small.
If you think about it man you know we got it all.
'Cos we're all we got on this bouncing ball.
And I love you free.
I love you freely.
Here's a riddle for you.

Find the answer.

There's a reason for the world: you and I.
