it’s a war lyrics – carole king

the moon is full and i’m awake
and i don’t know how much
i can take
before i get too angry to be sad
too many people thinkin’ mean
good ones few and far between
takin’ out on you
what they never had

it’s a war, war
war any more
it’s a war, war
war every day
you’ve got to keep your guard up
if someone else is hard up
he’ll try to steal your dreams away

once i thought of comp*ssion as
a feelin’ everybody has
do unto others
that’s the golden rule
but i found to my regret
people i had never met
were out to get me – i was just a fool

it’s a war, war
war any more
it’s a war, war
war every day
you’ve got to keep your guard up
if someone else is hard up
he’ll try to steal your dreams away
