0It's a human sign

When things go wrong

When the scent of her lingers
And temptation's strong

Into the boundary

Of each married man
Sweet deceit comes calling
And negativity lands

Cold cold heart

Hard done by you
Some things look better baby
Just passing through

And it's no sacrifice

Just a simple word
It's two hearts living
In two separate worlds
But it's no sacrifice
No sacrifice
It's no sacrifice at all

Mutual misunderstanding
After the fact
Sensitivity builds a prison
In the final act

We lose direction
No stone unturned
No tears to damn you
When jealousy burns

• Depending on what sort of information we want, we use one of the following question words:
Who wrote that book? (person)
What is your name? (thing)
Which book is yours? (thing)
When did you arrive? (time)
Where do you live? (place)
Why are you doing that? (reason)
How can I find out? (manner)

• What and which can often be used with the same meaning. When the person asking the question has a restricted number of choices in mind, s/he will use which. When s/he is not thinking of a restricted number of
choices, what is used:

Which main course (from the menu) are you going to have?
Which department (of this company) do you work in?
What name is on the envelope?
What number shall I call?

• Whom is a more formal way of saying who, and is not common when speaking. If we choose to put our question word after a preposition, then we must use whom:
With whom did you go?
However, this is very unusual, and we would normally avoid this by putting the preposition at the end of the phrase:
Who did you go with?
• Apart from these single words, we combine two or more words to find out other kinds of information:
How old are you?
What time is it?
How many children have you got?
How long did it take?

3. Prepositions with wh-questions

Prepositions (to, about, with, from, ...) usually go at the end. Here are some
- Where are you from?

why, where, how, when

They are usually placed at the beginning of a question.
