i’m trying lyrics – face to face

four year old at play, shot and killed today
never even had a chance
seventeen and high, threw away his life
has a gun to feel like he’s a man

can’t have it any other way

laying in the street, asking for a drink
doesn’t have a place to live
pregnant at thirteen, still can hear the screams
something that she never will forget

can’t have it any other way

i’m trying to open my mind
so you can keep your faith
as i’ll just walk away
there’s no reason for me to stay

can’t have it any other way
can’t have it any other way

i’m trying to open my mind
i’m trying to open my mind, my mind
and i’m trying to make up my mind
