People help the people (video)
F - Am - F - Am
1. God knows what is hiding in that weak and drunken heart,
I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry,
those hardfaced Queens of misadventure.
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes,
a fiery throng of muted angels giving love and getting nothing back.
People help the people,
and if you’re homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it.
F Am G
People help the people, and nothing will drag you down.
Dm C F Dm C F
Oh, and if I had a brain, oh, and if I had a brain,
Dm C F
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
Dm E F
that turned all those good hearts away.
2. God knows what is hiding in that world of little consequence,
behind the tears, inside the lies, a thousand slowly dying sunsets.
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts,
I guess the loneliness came knocking,
no one needs to be alone, oh, save me.
