We gotta work it out
Get back what we lost
I see shadows of a doubt,
But I'm keepin'my fingers crossed

She was just turning 17
He always promised her he'd stay
They were so love crazy 'til she had a baby
Then he turned and walked away.

How long will we keep this goin' on
Before we find a way
To care for each other
Living for today, we`ll never see tomorrow.


He was just out to get a wreck
He was too proud to show his pain
Someone pulled a trigger guess he never figured
He would lose at his own game.

How long can we keep this goin' on
When no one takes the blame
There's so many gone
We could find a way, it may not be too late.


Take a look around, see how hard it is
To survive these days
But sometimes you wonder
How long can this keep goin' on
I guess the only thing you do is keep your fingers crossed

How long will we keep this goin' on
When no one takes the blame
There's so many gone
Livin'for today, we may not see tomorrow
