We Can Stop the Hurtin'

This song is by Chicago and appears on the album Chicago 17 (1984).

What has happened to our town
There's people sleepin' on the ground
Cold and lost, they fear the night
Left alone, they lose the fight

Hadn't we better reach
For more than just a dime
Shouldn't we try to talk
That boy out of his crime

Haven't you had it
Knowing nothing's getting solved
Maybe we'd better
Better get involved

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile
We could stop the hurtin' for awhile, whoa
If we found a way to reconcile
We could stop the hurtin'

Families livin' in their cars
And kids run numbers out of bars, hey
Knowing pride won't pay the bills
Men work jobs beneath their skills, yeah

Hadn't we better hand out
More than just a line
Shouldn't we try to find
Solutions with our minds

Haven't you had it
Knowing nothing's getting solved
Maybe we'd better
Better get involved

We could stop this hurtin' for awhile
We could stop this hurtin' for awhile
If we found a way to reconcile
We could stop the hurtin'
We could stop the hurtin', baby

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile, whoa
We could stop it for awhile
(We could stop it for awhile)
If we found a way to reconcile
(If we found a way to reconcile)
We could stop, we could stop

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile, whoa
We could stop the hurtin' for awhile
(Oh, we could stop)
If we found a way to reconcile
(If we found a way)
We could stop, we could stop

We could stop it
We could stop it
We could stop it
We could stop

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile
(We could stop it)
We could stop the hurtin' for awhile
(We could stop it)
If we found a way to reconcile
(We could stop it)
We could stop, we could stop

We could stop the hurtin' for awhile
(We could stop it)
We could stop it for awhile
(We could stop it)
If we found a way to reconcile
(We could stop it)
We could stop, we could stop
