So, it's been a while since I've posted (I've been lurking in the shadows but I've been so busy with this, that and the other to be in the mood to post anything) so I thought I'd rectify it. Since I've just finished writing lyrics for someone else's songs and want to get back to updating my own (though I still have another song of someone else's I need to revisit and see if inspiration is ready to strike there as well).

This is one I wrote back in the 90's I think, though I've touched up the lyrics recently (only a tiny bit though, nothing radical).






THE LONELY, THE CRYING, THE BROKEN AND THE DYING


VERSE
It's a hard, cruel world
Welcome to reality
Too much pain and hurt
Wrapped up in humanity

BRIDGE
We try, we fail
It's written in the rules
Your eyes, so pale
Are learning the truth of

CHORUS
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Sat together on the wall
As it crumbles we will fall
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Lost forever to despair
And no one cares

VERSE
It's a game of chance
Odds are stacked against us all
No one gives a damn
They just want to see us fall

BRIDGE
We beg, we plead
We get down on our knees
They let us bleed
And no one knows the fear of

CHORUS
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Sat together on the wall
As it crumbles we will fall
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Lost forever to despair
And no one cares

EXTRA
We might as well be lepers
There's no one who will help us
Deserted with our backs against the wall
We don't require your pity
Not asking for your money
Just need to know it's worth it after all


INSTRUMENTAL

BRIDGE
We try, we fail
We might as well be fools
Your eyes, so pale
Are learning the truth of
CHORUS
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Sat together on the wall
As it crumbles we will fall
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Lost forever to despair
It's so unfair...
for...

EXTRA
The lonely. They crying. The broken. The dying.
The lonely. They crying. The broken. The dying.
The lonely. They crying. The broken. The dying.
The lonely. They crying. The broken. The dying.

CHORUS
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Sat together on the wall
As it crumbles we will fall
The lonely, the crying, the broken and the dying
Lost forever to despair
And no one cares

EXTRA
No, no one cares
With our backs against the wall
And no one cares
No no no no no no no!
No one cares

EXTRA
The lonely...
The crying...
The broken...
The dying...
The lonely...
The crying...
The broken...
The dying...
She was cast from Heaven
Found a place in Hell
She seduced the Devil
He screamed as he fell!

Eeek - I think something went wrong with the font sizes (or I should have gone to Specsavers!)
