    Both Sides of the Story

    [Verse 1]
    Find yourself in the gutter in a lonely part of town
    Where death waits in the darkness with a weapon to cut some stranger down
    Sleeping with an empty bottle, he's a sad and an empty hearted man
    All he needs is a job, and a little respect, so he can get out while he can

    [Chorus 1]
    We always need to hear both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story

    [Verse 2]
    A neighbourhood peace is shattered it's the middle of the night
    Young faces hide in the shadows, while they watch their mother and father fight
    He says she's been unfaithful, she says her love for him has gone
    And the brother shrugs to his sister and says "looks like it's just us from now on"

    [Chorus 1]
    All we always need to hear both sides of the story
    We need to hear both sides of the story

    [Chorus 2]
    And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
    People looking for truth, we must not fail them now
    Be sure, before we close our eyes
    Don't walk away from here
    Until you hear both sides

    [Verse 3]
    Here we are all gathered in what seems to be the center of the storm
    Neighbors once friendly now stand each side of the line that has been drawn
    They've been fighting here for years, but now there's killing on the streets
    While small coffins are lined up sadly, now united in defeat

    [Chorus 1]
    All we always need to hear both sides of the story

    [Chorus 2]
    And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
    People looking for truth, we must not fail them now
    Be sure, before we close our eyes
    Don't walk away from here
    Until you see both sides

    [Verse 4]
    White man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
    Ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
    He says "Would you respect me if I didn't have this gun"
    "Because without it, I don't get it, and that's why I carry one"

    [Outro]
    We always need to hear both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Oh, both sides of the story
    Yes, both sides of the story
    Oh, both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Both sides of the story
    Must hear both sides of the story
