Sean McCarthy – Sympathy lyrics

Sammy got around from work
Dropped his coat on the floor
Took a look at empty walls
Turned and closed the door

And then he lit a cigarette
And he went inside
Sat at the kitchen table
Yeah, and then he cried

Nobody's fault he just fell so easily
She didn't love him back
This is the way it's meant to be

We all need
A little sympathy
We all need
A hand in holdin' on

Mary, Mary who are you cryin' to?
There's nobody to listen
You haven't seen you little boy it's been a year or two
Since he's been missin'
It's been a long time

His daddy knew how much he meant to you
You've got no other family
Now what do you do?

We all need
A little sympathy
Oh, we all need
A hand in holdin' on

Sometimes the world around comes crashin' down like a ton of lead
When you lose the drive, oh it's hard to get ahead
There's a feelin' inside and it comes and it goes
It's somethin' everybody shares, and everybody knows

We all need
A little sympathy
Oh, we all need
A hand in holdin' on

Oh, we all need (everybody needs)
Just a little bit of sympathy (everybody breaks)
Don't you know we all need (everybody bleeds)
A hand in holdin' on (everybody need)

Sammy got around from work
Dropped his coat on the floor
Took a look at empty walls
Turned and closed the door

And then he lit a cigarette
And he went inside
Sat at the kitchen table
Yeah, and then he cried
