Lyrics Print lyrics

Why's it so hard to love one another

Why's it so hard to love

Why's it so hard to love one another

Why's it so hard to love

 

What do I have to do to be accepted

What do I have to say

What do I have to do to be respected

How do I have to play

What do I have to look like to feel I'm equal

Where do I have to go

What club do I have to join to prove I'm worthy

Who do I have to know

 

I'm telling you brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to challenge the system

Without living in pain

Brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to accept that we're different

Before it's too late

 

What do I have to learn to know what's right for me

What do I have to know

What am I going to do when I feel righteous

Where do I have to go

Who should get to say what I believe in

Who should have the right

What am I going to do with all this anger

Why do I have to fight

 

I'm telling you brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to challenge the system

Without living in pain

Brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to accept that we're different

Why's it so damn hard

 

Bring your love, sing your love

Wear your love, share your love

Bring your love, sing your love

Wear your love, share your love

Bring your love, sing your love

Wear your love, share your love

Bring your love, sing your love

Wear your love, show your sister how

(Why's it so damn hard)

 

Brothers, sisters

What do I have to say

Brothers, sisters

How do I have to play

Brothers, sisters

Who should have the right

Brothers, sisters

Why do I have to fight

 

Why's it so hard to love one another

Love your sister, love your brother

Why's it so hard to love one another

Love your sister, love your brother

Why's it so hard to love one another

Why's it so hard to love

 

I'm telling you brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to challenge the system

Without living in pain

Brothers, sisters

Why can't we learn to accept that we're different

Why's it so damn hard

 

Sing your love, share your love

Before it's too late

Sing your love, share your love

Before it's too late

Sing your love, share your love

Before it's too late

Sing your love, share your love

Ahh

 

Love your brother now, show your sister how

Love your brother now, show your sister

Love your brother now, show your sister how

Love your brother now, show your sister

Song

I'll Remember, the singleThe live performance of Why's It So Hard on the Girlie Show was included as a bonus track on the maxi single of I'll Remember.

Tour

Why's It So Hard @ Girlie ShowEveryone remembers the Blond Ambition performance of Like A Virgin, but Why's It So Hard on the Girlie Show was far more sexually explicit. After Deeper And Deeper, Madonna and her dancers get on the floor in what seems to be one big orgy that was a frequent event in Studio 54. One of the guys licks Madonna's breasts, leaving behind an obvious hicky, but then goes down on the other boys, while the girls take care of Madonna. With a lot of 'mmm' and 'yeah' they get into Why's It So Hard, and then everyone is hugging each other, holding each others hands, as if they're giving each other support. It strenghtens the message of the song: stick together, fight discrimination, love one another.
