lyrics

DO UNTO OTHERS

Do unto others as I have done
Do unto others ‘cos I have won
And I will always feel the pain
And I am constantly under the rain
And I am crying now for you
Do unto others as I do

There is much hate in the world
The taking of a little girl
And what can we do, held apart
The stripping down of hands and hearts
But if we are to be believed
We feel the loss, we’re free to grieve

Do unto others as I have done
Do unto others ‘cos I have won
And I will always hear the cry
And catch the words as they fly by
And I am crying now for you
Do unto others as I do








There are bruises in her eyes
And fluttering birds caged in her mind
And when each fist is made of stone
And prison walls are called a home
We can feel and understand
We’ll be there to hold her hand

Do unto others as I have done
Do unto others ‘cos I have won
And I will tell the truth again
And I am hurt by women and men
And I am crying now for you
Do unto others as I do

When she’s walking in the town
Hearing voices to shout her down
Still to be haunted in the street
Not knowing what or who she’ll meet
When the shaking starts to come
She needs to know she’s not alone

Do unto others as I have done
Do unto others ‘cos I have won
And I will always know the dark
And I will blow upon the spark
And I am crying now for you
Do unto others as I do

There is much hate in the world
