(Not my song; lyrics interpreted by ColdplayFanatic95)



[1]Another gun goes off in the night
A baby's last cry causes a fright
This is happening to innocent people
To get at one that's evil

A mother searches for days and days
To find her child, her amazing grace
But the search is ended when a body is found
A gunshot to the head, love the soldiers around

[C]Gotta keep strong
And say thanks every day
We're in America, safe and sound
Instead of Afghanistan, with guns all around
Little to no worry every day,
Our dreams are intact, not taken away
Not taken away,
No, never taken away

[2]A hungry man once thought he'd known weak
Until he'd lost support from his own two feet
The tired old woman was almost finished with life's cup
A nasty disease helped her bring it back up

The scared child hiding in the corner
Shivers in the darkness, wishing she was warmer
She takes her last breath 'bout midnight
The cold got her, she lost the fight

[C]

[3]A baby's born with a bad heart
But with no hospital around, who will make it restart?
Tears are shed as he's buried in the ground
His little body covered, not making a sound

The father who has tried with all his might
Has decided to give up, no hope left in sight
He tries to hide the tears as he's leaving his wife
She cries as well, for he was her life

[C]

[B]Be glad that this doesn't happen to you
There's no shots in the dark,
No tragic loss
But there's always a new
Our country can be great,
But it can be evil too
When you add in all the things
That people do

[C]
[Repeat V1]
