Maxi Priest - Cry For The Children

Slow down everyone pay attention
Let us reason for a while
I'm worried about this everyday killing
That is turning into style
Don't try to convince it's normal
Playing with human rights
I don't know about you
But I know it brings tears to my eyes

And I cry for the children
And I pray for them
That someday consciousness will once again
Be the answer to our prayers, oh yeah

Now I'm tired of all the goings on around us every day
How did the little bitty innocent babies
Become pray and by the way
How could we allow ourselves to go so far
I'm almost certain, we've forgotten who we are
I'm wide awake in a dream that never ends
And my heart cries out for help every day

And I cry for the children
And I pray for them
That someday consciousness will once again
Be the answer to our prayers, oh yeah

How many more lives do you need for your game?
'Cause we're counting
How many more mothers will you leave in pain?
'Cause it's mounting
Could you give me a time or a day
How much longer will we have to wait?
Will there be sunshine
And no trace of crime when I wake
Now I'm tired

Now I'm tired of all the goings on around us every day
How did the little bitty innocent babies
Become pray and by the way
How could we allow ourselves to go so far
I'm almost certain, we've forgotten who we are
I'm wide awake in a dream that never ends
And my heart cries out for help every day

And I cry for the children
And I pray for them
That someday consciousness will once again
Be the answer to our prayers, oh yeah
