Tears Won’t Wash Out a Word

Bad night

Woke in a deep depression

So bleak

Life is in a sad recession

Too many memories

Too many loved ones

Gone

Need to write myself out of it today

What do you say?

Guess I’m just human

And I’ll get by

I suppose

Remember it is true

Loyalty is valuable

But our lives are valuable too

 

The right words make you listen

In this cruel world

Any change of values I have got to write it down

They are destroying the Welfare State

I have got to write it down

It must not be forgotten

As long as I write it down

 

Bad day

Dealing with this depression

So bleak

Life is in a sad recession

Too many memories

Too many mistakes

Made

Need to write myself out of it today

What do you say?

Guess I’m just human

And I’ll get by

I suppose

Remember it is true

Honesty is valuable

But our lives are valuable too

 

The right words make you listen

In this cruel world

Any change of values I have got to write it down

They are destroying Palestine

I have got to write it down

It must not be forgotten

As long as I write it down

 

Bad month

Coping with this depression

So bleak

Life is in a sad recession

Too many memories

Too many bridges

Burned

Need to write myself out of it today

What do you say?

Guess I’m just human

And I’ll get by

I suppose

Remember it is true

Dignity is valuable

But our lives are valuable too

 

The right words make you listen

In this cruel world

Any change of values I have got to write it down

They are destroying the working class

I have got to write it down

It must not be forgotten

As long as I write it down

 

Bad year

Struggling with this depression

So bleak

Life is in a sad recession

Too many memories

Too many lovers

Lost

Need to write myself out of it today

What do you say?

Guess I’m just human

And I’ll get by

I suppose

Remember it is true

Sanctity is valuable

But our lives are valuable too

 

The right words make you listen

In this cruel world

Any change of values I have got to write it down

They are destroying the news agenda

I have got to write it down

It must not be forgotten

As long as I write it down
