GOD WEEPS, Work Tape
play hi-fiplay hi-fi    
This is a cowrite I was working on with my beautiful friend and fellow song bird Dian Roberts Piper. She fought a brave battle with the Big C and sadly earned her wings today. I hope to have a polished version to share she'd be proud of soon!

About the song
Me and my wonderful cowriter decided to try an AABA story song with some cold hard truth in the message. This is my beautiful cowriter Dian's original work tape with her lovely singing. She was fighting a battle with the Big C, and sadly she has gone home to be with Jesus today. But I've made a promise to her to get a polished version of our song we can share with the world one day soon.
Lyrics
God Weeps
© Colleen Laylon, Dian Roberts Piper, BMI, 2014

A shot rings out, in a place they call "brown town"
nother' random shootin', or a drug deal goin' down
We're safe in our beds, on this side of the tracks
his Mama gets the news, her son ain't comin' back
But Hey..... it don't affect you or me....
go on with your dreams....on with your dreams.....
The whole world sleeps....but God Weeps...

South of the border, a drug wars goin' on
bodies line the streets, and the tourists are all gone
Ev'ry other day, another child dies
the poppy fields are thrivin', go ahead close your eyes
Cause Hey.... it don't affect you or me....
keep chasin' your dreams....chasin' your dreams
The whole world sleeps.... but God Weeps...

They manipulate the news, try to hide the truth
Afraid we might wake up, afraid what we might do
Oh I cry sometimes too, yeah I cry too

We give em' the guns, to kill their fellow man
then they turn on us, with our blood on their hands
Our boys come back home, heroes in body bags
we line the streets cryin', wavin' minature flags
Don't Say... it don't affect you or me,
they gave us their Dreams.... American Dreams
The whole world sleeps.... but God Weeps

Ohhhhh the whole world sleeps.... but God Weeps...
Yeah the whole world.. sleeps....and God still Weeps
