A song

I wrot this last night… so far I haven’t been able to sing it all the way through without crying. I know you guys won’t know that it sounds like, but the feeling is more important.

Heard the news today
seems the world’s turned upside down
a lotta people are lost and gone
it’s no supprise I wear a frown.
I wept my tears I said my prayers
but the pain still lingers on
cause I know the worlds a darker place
than I woke up to this morn

CHORUS:
And I don’t wanna feel it any more.
And I don’t wanna wonder what’s it for.
And I just wanna look outside and feel like it’s all right.
But I just don’t think I can, tonight.

Hear the word today
cause we’re marching off to war
to end the fight you understand
it’s such an awful chore
I see the people in the streets
remembering their friends
they want something to hold onto
until this nightmare ends

CHORUS:
And I don’t wanna feel it any more.
And I don’t wanna wonder what’s it for.
And I just wanna look outside and feel like it’s all right.
But I just don’t think I can, tonight.

I saw my love today
and I just broke down and cried
I had this fear deep in my heart
what if my love had died
now we can fight and we will win
and feel safe once more
but there’s just no way to change things back
to the way they were before

CHORUS:
And I don’t wanna feel it any more.
And I don’t wanna wonder what’s it for.
And I just wanna look outside and feel like it’s all right.
But I just don’t think I can, tonight.

And I just wanna look outside and feel like it’s all right.
But I just don’t think I can, tonight.

So true. :frowning: When it’s all said and done, America and the people who live here will never be the same again. Forever changed, we can only hope to make it better.

OneDollarWilliam, that is so touching. I can understand why you can’t sing it all the way through without crying. Thank you for sharing it.

Thank you TruePisces I am glad you are touched. On another note if any SDers live in Athens, GA and play accoustic gituar the song could really use some accompianament.
