Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Peace In L.A. lyrics

Written by: Tom Petty

We need peace in L. A.
What happened was wrong
We all feel betrayed
But we got to be strong

If the power that be
Let evil go free
You must understand
Don't play into their hand

[Chorus:]
We need peace in L. A.
Peace in L. A.

Don't need beating and shooting
Don't need burning and looting
Tonight we all pray
That our children are safe

This hurt and frustration
There is a heart realization
But how can we help
If we steal from ourself

[Chorus:]

Stay cool
Don't be a fool
Stay cool
Don't be a fool
Don't be a fool
