Tears Over Denver

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

All were in a cinema that night
Watching a film of a superhero
Then they were taken by fright
A nutter came to deal his blow

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

Twelve were taken they did say
Fifty more were injured too
Confused and shock did reign
As this madman did let loose

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

A hail of death did strike
That late and sad night
No-one understood, didn’t try
They just wanted to take flight

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

The sadness of it all will always be
Memories of that day ingrained
Guns sadly available in the land of the free
Banning them is the only way

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

For if this continues
There’ll be many more
Too many of these people loose
That care not for America’s laws

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried

Ban the gun, stop the problem
Stop these madmen now
Maybe will it stop then
In every city, in every town

Heard the news on the TV
Through sleep filled eyes
Couldn’t believe the screen
Tears over Denver I cried
Tears over Denver tonight
Tears over Denver
Sad tears the world over…

**In Memoriam to those lost in Denver, Colorado 20/07/2012 and to all those of gun crime the world over. Our thought are with you and the survivors as well as families of all involved.
