Lyrics

Looking for an Answer

Written By: Lou Mars

She’s always looking for an answer
She’s always looking for a sign
Doesn't know where she’s going
She walks to the end of the line
Not knowing where she stands
Never looking to the past now
Oh, she’s so strong
Yet, she’s afraid
Stands so tall at night
Frail during day
Wow, she’s beautiful
Smiles in the rain
Got such empty eyes
Sunshine in pain
Well, she’s gone
She’s gone back again
She's gone away

Put Away

Written By: Lou Mars

Put away that knife my friend
Your cuts are way to deep
Put away those pills
You’ve had too many to eat
Put away that gun
You only get one shot to miss
Put away that smoke
You no longer have a lung to choke
She said put away,
He said put away,
We said put away
Sometimes you have to close your ears
To the whisperers you cannot see
Sometimes you have to face the fears
From those who say you cannot be
Don’t give up the fight my friend
Nothing is worth defeat
Don’t worry about the others
For they cannot sleep
She said put away
He said put Away
We said put away

You said put way
