Both Sides Of The Story

In the style of

Phil Collins

Lyrics

find yourself
in the gutter
in a lonely part
of town

with it waits
in the darkness
with a weapon
to cut some
stranger down

sleeping with
an empty bottle
is a sad and an
empty-hearted man

what he needs is a job
with a little respect
so he can get out
while he can

we always
need to hear
both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story

neighborhood peace
is shattered
it's the middle
of the night

young faces hide
in the shadows
while they watch
their mother
and father fight

he says she's been
unfaithful
she says
her love for him
is gone

and the brother
shrugs to his sister
and says
looks like it's just us
from now on

oh we always
need to hear
both sides
of the story
we need to hear
both sides
of the story

and the lights
are all on
the world
is watching now

people
looking for truth
we must not
fail them now
be sure
before we close
our eyes

walk away from here
until you hear
both sides
no no no no

here we are
all gathered
in what seems to be
the center
of the storm

neighbors
once friendly
now stand inside
of the line
that has been drawn

they've been
fighting here
for years
but now
there's killing
on the streets

while small coffins
are lined up sadly
now united in defeat

oh we always
need to hear
both sides
of the story

well the lights
are all on
the world
is watching now

people
looking for truth
we must not
fail them now
be sure
before we
close our eyes

walk away from here
until you see
both sides
no no no no no no

white man
turns the corner
finds himself within
a different world

ghetto kid
grabs his shoulder
throws him up
against the wall

he says
would you respect me
if i didn't have this gun
'cause without it
i don't get it
and that's
why i carry one

we always
need to hear
both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story

oh both sides
of the story
yes both sides
of the story
oh both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story

both sides
of the story
both sides
both sides
of the story

both sides
of the story
ooh both sides
of the story yeah
both sides
of the story

both sides
both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story

both sides
of the story
must hear
both sides
of the story
both sides
of the story
