The last thing that my father saw
When he was still alive.
Was the gun in the hands of a sick young man
with bright blue eyes.
A man who looked just like me,
As far as anyone else could see
A stranger, not an enemy
And my mother watched it all.
That was the last thing that she saw.

Somewhere in America
A phones about to ring.
Nothing can prepare you for
the news its going to bring.
Nothing ever changes
Just the names and faces.
Somewhere in America
A phones about to ring.

An unlucky break
wrong time, wrong place
I've heard them all so many times.
If your dad had had a gun of his own,
maybe they'd still be alive.
But I still can't believe the resistance.
The denial, the insistence
When somethings broken
that clearly needs fixing
You can fight to change
Or you can fight to stay the same.

Somewhere in America
the news is about to break
Nothing can prepare you for
The toll its gonna take
Nothing ever changes
Just the dates and the locations.
Somewhere in America
The news is about to break.

How long is too long
Before the words you can't say
Just speak for you.

The years have been kind ma
I've got a son now of my own.
When I think of what I'll tell him happened to you
I still don't know.
That the worlds a much safer place
That kind of danger,
you won't ever have to face.
I pray he lives to see that day
No idea what I'm going to say.

Somewhere in America
A phones about to ring
Nothing can prepare you for
the news its going to bring.
All this while we've been waiting
taking time and debating
Somewhere in America
A phones about to ring
Somewhere in America
