Why

I protect the streets while your asleep
For why
I cannot tell
It is a feeling down inside of me;
But the feeling I cannot tell

If I see you hurting or crying
I will ask you what is wrong
and if I can help you I will try
for that is my job

Why can't I show
the love for the people I protect
if I do you will see
I am human after all

I may be hard
I may be cruel
But in the end you will see
I do it because I care
not to satisfy me

I wish you could see me at home
with my love ones I hold so dear;
then you would see I am human
and not to think of me in fear

To all that do support me
I thank you one and all
for it is you that gives me strength
to give the world my all
