Family Ties Lyrics

Artist: Lucky Dube
Album: The Other Side

Family Ties
Ever since they were born
she was worried about their friends
even when they turned twenty five
she was worried about the company they'd keep
one day it was three in the morning
the door bell rang
she got up in a sweat
blue lights flashing everywhere
the boys in blue standing at the door
the look on their faces scared her enough
before they told her what she was always afraid of

do you know where your son/daughter is tonight
I'm afraid they won't be coming home tonight

ever since she was brought to this home
she's been cursing every woman with a child
she says they brought to this world the curse
that have stained the good name of mankind
one day it was three in the morning
the guard came running to tell us she's gone
blue lights flashing everywhere
all over again
the boys in blue, looking for her
the look on their faces
scared us enough when they told us to strengthen our family ties

do you know where your mother/father is tonight
I'm afraid they won't be coming home tonight

I wish i could stick this lyric on the surface of the sky and get it shining brighter than the stars.How many living closer to everything that money can buy but distant from happiness?We build it at home and the tools are in the heart.THE TIGHTER THEY FIT,THEY GRANT LIFE TO THE SOCIETY,strengthen your family ties.LUCKY DUBE IS THE WAY THERE.
