Jackson Browne – Say It Isn't True lyrics

In the still of the night
Lying in the darkness
I listen to my heart
Say it isn't true
In the dark and the quiet
The movements of my love
And the breathing of our children
Say it isn't true
In the streets and the buildings
The people in their lives
And the jobs they do for a living
Say it isn't true
And when you think of all the people
In the cities of the world
Who could vanish in a moment
Say it isn't true
Say it isn't true
That there always has been and always will be war
Say it isn't true
And apart from all the fine things that men have struggled for
Say it isn't true
There always has been and always will be war
Say it isn't true

I'm alive in a city
In a country of the world
And I want to go on living
I want to see my life unfold
You know it's hard to go on looking
At the stories of our day
And the dangers we're all facing
Growing worse in every way
And you would think with all of the genius
And the brilliance of these times
We might find a higher purpose
And a better use of mind

Say it isn't true
That there always has been and always will be war
Say it isn't true
And apart from all the fine things that man has struggled for
Say it isn't true
There always has been and always will be war
Say it isn't true

Say it...
Say it isn't...
