This was the first song I ever composed...in the shower of all places!

Another baby born,
with a monkey on its back,
another homeless child,
roams the endless railroad tracks,
another teenage girl is,standin' in the welfare line,
another teenage boy is,
packin' guns not afraid of dyin',

The morning sun rises,
it's time to close your eyes,
not seeing or believing,
another day's demise,
then darkness falls upon you,
but the stars are shining bright,
hinting to the darkside,
there has to be some light...

Another woman hides,
from the man who calls her wife,
another man drinks,
to forget his empty life,
another woman sold,
for the fix she needs tonight,
another angry man,
takes another man's life,

The morning sun rises,
it's time to close your eyes,
not seeing or believing,
another day's demise,
then darkness fall upon you,
but the stars are shining bright,
hinting to the darkside,
there has to be some light...

Another man's leaving,
to find the other side of life,
another woman lonely,
can't you see it in her eyes,
another family broken,
but they put up their disguise,
another child suffers,
for him there is no light,

The morning sun rises,
it's time to close your eyes,
not seeing or believing,
another day's demise,
then darkness falls upon you,
but the stars are shining bright,
hinting to the darkside,
there has to be some light,
yes, hinting to the darkside,
there has to be some light....

What a sad song, Angela.
And the saddest part is its truth.
For some there is so much misery and hurt.

A little love, a little kindness, a little compassion...
There has to be some light!

Sharing our love is one way of sharing light.
In gratitude,
Richard

It is getting rather dim out there, but "we" can change that with just every day musings. We can smile a little more, we can hold a door open for a hurried woman and her three radical screaming monsters aka "beloved children", we can strive to be more observant of those who could use a little optimism from us, and we can just simply remind those whom share our lives how much they mean to us....it takes a mere one voice to start a revolution....it is our choice whether that revolution is that of love and compassion or that of hate and intolerence....

Good song, but there has to be some light? Nothing like being optimistic, but the light is growning dimmer and dimmer as we speak . . .

Masterful. Reminds of the sone "Streets of London" by Ralph Mactell.

Such ease of flow, with poignant messages...

A soul-stirring song; sad but true to everyday life in this world. Thank you for sharing it, Angela. Welcome to the Den. Love and peace to you,

Regis
