LOVE IS THE ANSWER
Words & Music by Joy Flanakin

VERSE 1
In a world so full of tears
I pretend to hold you near
How I wish you were still here

VERSE 2
In a world so full of crime
A gunman took what once was mine
Now it happens all the time

PRE-CHORUS
In my memories
You're safe in my arms
And life seems so beautiful

But I know that right outside
The bullets fly and mothers cry

CHORUS
No more killing
No one wins
Will this madness
Ever end

CHORUS
God please give us
The love you possess
When will we learn
That love is the answer

VERSE 3
When the dark clouds do appear
I pretend that you are here
And I can tell you, you were loved

BREAK

PRE-CHORUS
In my memories
You're safe in my arms
And life seems so beautiful

But I know that right outside
The bullets fly and mothers cry

CHORUS
Please no more killing
No one wins
Will this madness
Ever end

God please give us
The love you possess
When will we learn
That love is the answer


VERSE 4
You were never given a chance
To grow into the man
That I knew that you'd become

My beautiful son
