After the love has gone

Some kids, only sweet sixteen
Think they're really tough
You could give them everything
It wouldn't be enough

Mothers crying all alone
What did I do wrong?
Raising up a family
You've got to be so strong

After the love has gone
How can we carry on?
After the love has gone
How can we carry on?

Father is a broken man
He drinks to forget
He's searching for the higher gound
But he ain't found it yet

Everyday just like the last
Poverty and lust
So hateful of the richer man
Because he ain't like us

After the love has gone
How can we carry on?
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Like walking into a storm

Walking into a storm

Strangled by religion
Those that still believe
When you don't have nothing
The lord he will relieve

Television lifestyle
People come on down
Welcome to the future
Your feet won't touch the ground
Your feet won't touch the ground

After the love has gone
How can we carry on?
After the love has gone
What used to be right is wrong
Like walking into a storm
