Couldn't hear alarm bells ringing,
we never saw the danger signs.
When misery comes calling,
we're at the mercy of mankind.

This is just another season,
another year we'll soon forget.
You can raise a child to reason,
but you can't teach them self-respect.

You know the reckoning's in sight,
armed with emotion, but we never learned to fight,
our cup of sorrow is full enough to share,
and all we're really looking for is tender lovin' care
Oh, all we're looking for
Yeah, all we're looking for is tender lovin' care
Oh, all we're looking for
Yeah, all we're looking for is tender lovin' care
Oooh, tender lovin' care

It's gonna take a fierce battalion,
to disengage old fashioned rules.
set out to find our future leaders
in the hallways of their high schools.
They say the body's just a vessel,
a place where heart and mind collide.
While God is slipping through our pockets,
can we say faith is on our side?
