August Lyrics

bon jovi

 

it was another day

a perfect texas afternoon

a mother and two children play

the way they always do

as they raced home from the mailbox

a mother and her son

against a little girl of 6 years old

the independant one

 

the deputies went door to door

through all the neighborhood

they said i got some news to tell you folks

i'm afraid it ain't so good

somehow something happened

someone got away

someone got the answers for what happened here today

oh no, oh no, oh no, no, no, no

tell me it was just a dream - august 7 4:15

god closed his eyes and the world got mean

august 7 4:15

 

now the people from the papers and the local tv news

tried to find the reason

cop dogs sniffed around for clues

someone shouted "hit and run"

the coroner cried "foul"

her blue dress was what she wore

the day they laid her body down

oh no, oh no, oh no, no, no, no

tell me it was just a dream - august 7 4:15

god closed his eyes and the world got mean

august 7 4:15

 

i know tonight that there's an angel

up on heaven's highest hill

and no one there can hurt you baby

no one ever will

somewhere someone's conscience is like a burning bed

the flames are all around you

how you gonna sleep again

oh no, oh no, oh no, no, no, no

tell me it was just a dream - august 7 4:15

god closed his eyes and the world got mean

august 7 4:15
