John Mellencamp – Young Without Lovers lyrics

Better take a look
At my circle
Better take a look around
Tell all my friends
Better take a look
At the colors of the people
Young without lovers
Old without friends

Better say a prayer
For the poor and unhealthy
Better sing a song
For those who don't care
Let the people have the right
To be different
Young without lovers
Old without friends

Life is an abstraction
And it tries to fool us all
And it's working so far it seems
Brother against brother
This world is such a mess
Behind the drawn curtains
So our thoughts can not be seen

Better shake the hand
Of the hated
Better hear the words
That don't seem clear
Better take a look around
At what we're doing
Young without lovers
Old without friends

Better take a look
At my circle
Better take a look around
Tell all of my friends
Let the people have the right
To be different
Young without lovers
Old without friends
Young without lovers
Old without friends
Young without lovers
Old without friends
