Bitter Tears

Artist: Shirley Novak | Album: Semi-Aware

Starving babies crying, politicians lying
Murdered child, wars run wild
Floods take away the land
Tended by a sweating man
All gone, history’s gone
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

Chorus:
Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Children taken into care
‘cause mummy said i’d be better off there
Without dad, but he looks so sad
Sitting on the fountain in trafalgar square
Seeing in the new year, do we really care?
Do we care?, do you care?
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

(Chorus)

Coming home to rest, to rest
(repeats)
