The Unrequited Dream

Do you hear the cry?
Do you feel the grief?
They held down a man who said he couldn’t breathe.1
Listen to the words,
You can find the key,
And sing low the song of the unrequited dream.

Do you hear the cry?
Do you feel the grief?
The boy’s hands were up when they shot him in the street.2
Listen to the words,
You can find the key,
And sing low the song of the unrequited dream.

Do you hear the cry?
Do you feel the grief?
The gun was fired while the girl was asleep.3
Listen to the words,
You can find the key,
And sing low the song of the unrequited dream.

Do you hear the cry?
Do you feel the grief?
He said he was scared, though she was 93.4
Listen to the words,
You can find the key,
And sing low the song of the unrequited dream.

Do you hear the cry?
Do you feel the grief?
The people striving for their dignity.
Listen to the words,
You can find the key,
And sing low the song of the unrequited dream.
Pray that love is enough to set us free.
Join as one with the ones who cannot breathe.
Sing low the song of the unrequited dream.
Sing low the song of the unrequited dream.
The unrequited dream.
The unrequited dream.
