Standing in the Line

This song is by Richard Barone.

For all the ladies standing in the line
For all the people waiting for a sign
You cry, you cry.

For all the beggars reaching out a hand
For all the soldiers crawling cross the sand
You cry, you cry.

For all the children staring into space
As all the politicians fall from grace
You cry, you cry.

For all the prisoners held without a crime
And all the angels dead before their time
You cry, you cry.

And oh how I need to believe
But the devil deals with face cards up his sleeve
And oh if your tears were a sign,
I would put my life in your hands and stand in the line.

For all the creatures running out of luck
And all the forests burning for a buck
You cry, you cry.

For all the ones that die without a cause
And all the nations bombing to defend Gods laws
You cry, you cry.

And oh how I pray that you're real
But the devil pulls a string we all can feel
And oh if your love was for free,
I would stand alone at your door to hear you crying for me.

For all the people starving in the night
For all the sailors looking for a fight
You cry, you cry.

For the beggars reaching out a hand
And all the soldiers crawling cross the sand
You cry, you cry.

For all the ladies standing in the line
And all the people waiting for a sign
You cry, you cry.
