paradise in troubled waters

Cheryl Wheeler



 FG
 Winter's voice had barely spoken
 EmF
 Everyone was bummed and broken
 FGCFG
 Hangin' onto yhreads the way we do  
 FG
 Shielding eyes from TV screens
 EmF
 With African starvation scenes
 G
And photographs in magazines
 FGCFG
Of things that can't seem true  
 C
 Paradise In Troubled Waters
 FG
 Situation grim
 C
 And we the reckless sons and daughters
 FG
 Spread the luck so thin
 C
Oh, the gross results and chain reaction
 FG
 Too late understood
 FG
 Leave us in embarrassed silence
 FG
 Wishing that we could
 C
Make the difference, see the light
 FG
Carry the flag, lead the fight
 C
Save the whales, save the seals
 FG
Save the trees and birds and fields
 FaddBCFG
And save each other   
 FG
 So we read the news with helpless eyes
 EmF
 And look for ways to compromise
 FGCFG
 But mostly, we just do the best we can  
 FG
Is it just a part of what we are
 EmF
To want too much and go too far
 FG
 And contemplate with no regard
 FGCFG
 What we don't understand
