About the song
I was watching the morning news and there was a story about a gunman going into a preschool in Scotland and killing children. Right then, my young son, came in and asked what it was about.
Lyrics
A.M. News
James McCanna 2000

i woke up early this morning
turned on the a.m. news
mad man went off without warning
doing the things evil men do

then my young son came and joined me
t.v. reflected in his eye
this is not what i wanted him to see
and i knew he would ask me why

how can i ever explain
all the bad things that people can do
how can i mitigate the pain
and still tell him what is true

i guess i'll start with all the good things
that the world is made of
all the blessings this life brings
family truth beauty and love

then i'll move to the bad
when everything goes wrong
i know this will make him sad
but i'll not lead him along

how can i ever explain
all the bad things that people can do
how can i mitigate the pain
and still tell him what is true

all i want is to prepare him
for the world as it is
not too happy not too grim
in the end it'll all be his
in the end it'll all be his
in the end it'll all be his
