Another Lovesong
(T. Downing/S. Downing)

another lovesong
floating down thru the air
and all the mothers
they cry out in despair
another black kid
face down with a hole in his head
another victim
of urban decay
and all the teachers
walked out yesterday
another jackhead
shoots a girl from the back of a car

all the rage and jealousy
laid out for all the world to see
and there's no chance for you and me
to keep out
all that we can do is try
to cross our hearts and hope to die
before the love falls from our eyes/
before the tears fall from our eyes/
before the rain falls from the sky
let it out

another handgun
in the mouth of a child
and all the children
who are growing up wild
another blueboy
shot down at the end of a beat
another rapist
makes bail & he walks
another crack house
going up down the block
another teenage dealer
dumped at the side of the road

another white girl
sneaks out every night
she gets thru high school
and she can't read or write
another baby
and she's stuck for the rest of her life
every Latino
out in East San Jose
and every Native
down & out in LA.
they only want to make it
all go away and start over

another lovesong
from an old radio
and it reminds me how far
I've got to go
another year goes by
and I'm watching my friends getting older
are we pretending
that love conquers all?
and that's assuming
we can all get along
another reason to wake up
'cause the honeymoon's over
