"Town Without Pity" as written by and Ned/tiomkin Washington....
When you're young and so in love as we
And bewildered by the world we see
Why do people hurt us so
Only those in love would know
What a town without pity can do

If we stop to gaze upon a star
People talk about how bad we are
Ours is not an easy age
We're like tigers in a cage
What a town without pity can do

The young have problems, many problems
We need an understanding heart
Why don't they help us, try and help us
Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

Take these eager lips and hold me fast
I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last
How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two
What a town without pity can do

How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two
What a town without pity can do

No, it isn't very pretty what a town without pity

    General CommentThis is such a sad song. Everytime I hear It, I think about a homosexual relationship. Or someone who gets picked on. There is so many close minded people out there it's disgusting. Town Without Pity may not have intentionally meant for it to be, but it's fits quite well into a "forbidden" love scenario, and how people can be cruel. It's really a great song.

    General CommentI was thinking Romeo and Juliet. But then I get a nagging feeling it's not as simple as that.
