Together we cry…

Some may say that this song is sad once you listen to the lyrics and the truth that they hold, perhaps though a few of you may hear it as I do.

“Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
Show your kids the truth, and hope they never lie”

We all have to do what we can, the best that we can do and try our best to teach our children, live as we believe we should and to help the world in order to make it a slightly better place for our children’s children.  Sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed. Truth is that no matter what we do we can’t prevent all things, we can’t control what happens in the world or to those that we love.  Instead we can only be there for them in their time of need, guide them where we can and to teach them the best we can in hope that they then have the skills to survive what ever trials come their way.

“Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
Show your kids the truth, and hope they never lie”

For me this song holds a valuable lesson, we cry, we feel guilt for what we never did (in reality weren’t in a position to do) and we torment… all we can really do, ever do, is be the best we can be each and every day we arise to a new dawn…

Together we cry
Together we cry

Jenny was a poor girl, living in a rich world
Named her baby hope when she was just 14
She was hoping for a better word for this little girl
But the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree
When she gets that call, Hopes too far gone
Her baby’s on the way, with nothing left inside
Together We Cry

What about the john play, could have gone the whole way
Lighting up the stage tryna get a deal
Now he’s lighting up the wrong way, something for the pain
Man you wanna see this kid he was so fuckin’ unreal
When he gets that call, he’s too far-gone
Can’t get it together to sing one song
And they won’t hear tonight, the words of a lullaby

Together We Cry [X4]

Mary’s ambition, she wants to be a politician
She’s been dreaming about it since she was a girl
She thought, that she’d be the one who could change the world
Always tryna pave the way for women in a man’s world
But life happened, house, kids, 2 cars, husband hit’s the jar,
Checks that don’t go very far now
Now she ain’t making changes, she keeps her mind on her wages
The only rattling cages are her own

Together We Cry [X2]

Theres so much sad gonna flood the ocean
Were all in tears from a world thats broken

Together We Cry [X2]

The comes a time that every bird has to fly
At some point every rose has to die
It’s hard to let your children go, leave home, where they go, who knows?
Gettin’ drunk, gettin’ stoned all alone
Teach a man to fish, feed a man for life
Show your kids the truth, and hope they never lie
Instead of reading in a letter that they’ve gone to something better
Bet your sorry now, I wont be coming home tonight

I’m sick of looking for those heroes in the sky
To teach us how to fly
Together we cry, we cry, we cry

Together We Cry
