lyrics

Need

I see a little boy, sitting in a cardboard box
Now he’s got no mother there, to mend his socks
At the age of innocence, young girl so sweet
Now she sells herself, to drunks on the street

Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
I need much more so I sing this song
Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
Without the hope of love I can’t go on

Tearstained faces twisted in pain
Gather round the grave
While bloodstained hands held high in prayer
Are killing in the name of faith
What kind of faith is this?
To cause so much pain

Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
I need much more so I sing this song
Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
Without the hope of love I can’t go on

Children starve in the cold of winter
Violence spreads and disease is rife
Yet gunshots still echo through the rubble and broken glass
Increasing the strife
The tools of war and hate
Seem more precious than life

Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
I need much more so I sing this song
Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
Without the hope of love I can’t go on

I see a man, appalled by the scenes he sees every night on TV
He stuffs his face in his cosy home, sits back, says “too bad” and drinks tea in sympathy
When will we learn to love someone
Someone else but Me?

Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
We need much more so we sing this song
Where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone, where’s the love gone?
Without the hope of love this world goes wrong
This world goes wrong
