Lyrics

Come, little darling, come sit on my lap

It's been a hard day and I'm trying to forget

More grateful than ever for you, little one

But I'm scared for the damage that's done

 

Chorus:

Some raised alarms, but the right to bear arms

- Ah, we think we can teach wrong from right -

Some raised alarms, but the right to bear arms

Leaves a whole lot of searching tonight

 

We all know with sadness no law can suppress

The lost filled with hate so why punish the rest

But buying visions of safety with "guns everywhere"

Our salvation, or buyer beware?

(chorus)

 

So sleep my sweet boy, in the morning I'll try

To tell you what happened though I can't explain why

 

I guess I'll tell you that sometimes an awful surprise

Like a broken man shooting a school out of spite

Can shatter our hearts but not steel our resolve

You should be too young to have to know

There are things we can't solve

(chorus)

 

And we think we can teach wrong from right
