The Three Degrees – Trade Winds lyrics

Here I stand looking
Looking all around me
While all around me (What do I see?)
What do I see?

Unhappy faces behind the painted smile
Heartache and loneliness dressed up in modern style
Unhappy people living in sin and shame
Reflections of myself, life is no easy game
We're caught in the trade winds (trade winds)
The trade winds of our time

Here I stand looking
Looking all around me
While all around me (What do I see?)
What do I see?

(Young girls who would soon become) Young girls would soon become
(Walkers of anatomy) Streetwalkers in the night
(Young boys of the neighborhood) Young boys, the restless breed
(Tell me what they're gonna do) And they're looking for a fight
(Children who both rich and poor) Children both rich and poor
(Tell me what they're searching for) They're searching for the truth
Ad if they don't find it, God help tomorrow's youth
We're caught in the trade winds (trade winds)
Ooh, the trade winds of our time

The trade winds are blowing
Blowing all around me
While all around me (What do I see?)
What do I see?

(Hatredness and jealousy)
Hatred and jealousy, brotherhood is dying
(Love is what we really need)
Love is the answer, but nobody's buying
Good people turning bad
Some don't, but there are few
The trade winds are blowing, the choice is up to you
We're caught in the trade winds (trade winds)
Ooh, the trade winds of our time, ooh yes

Yes, we're caught up in the trade winds
Ooh, trade winds of our time, oh yeah
We're caught up, we're caught up in the trade winds
Yeah, yeah, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yeah-eah-eah-eah
Ohhhh, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
We're caught up in the trade winds, trade winds
Trade winds of our time
We're caught up, we're caught up in the trade winds
