Sure Sounds Like Society To Me

  • (Harry Chapin)

    Chorus:
    I know when a child is hurting that silence can be wrong
    I know when there's old folk helpless I can't just pass along
    I know when someone's hungry it's not enough to sing a song
    And when I hear somebody crying I can't just wonder who it could be
    Well I hear somebody crying now - sounds just like society to me

    I don't know about inflation, or who makes what inflate
    And each new day sensation, I just don't know why it rates
    But in my imagination I'm sure how I feel
    That my present hesitation is 'cause I'm afraid it's real
    Sometimes these days it's hard to choose the one right road to go
    But this I'm very sure I know

    Insecurity can beat me, sometimes that's where I'm at
    Till now the music keeps me, so I think I can count on that
    But something's hurt me deeply though I try to hide the pain
    But wide awake or sleeping, still there's questions that remain
    Sometimes these days it's hard to choose the one right road to go
    But this I'm very sure I know

    Sometimes a simple question can be better than the truth
    Sometimes we need experience, sometimes we need our youth
    Sometimes the signs point out to us that we have lost our way
    Sometimes the times are times that look an awful lot like today
    Sometimes these days it's hard to choose the one right road to go
    But this I'm very sure I know

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

  • [1991:] I've always been a fan of Harry Chapin and this recent release, which he recorded shortly before his tragic death, is another reminder, if we need one, of the man's humanity. (Notes Iain MacKintosh, 'Just My Cup of Tea')
