​Solidarity

This song is by Richard Clapton and appears on the album Solidarity (1984).

Clapton

Hey kid! don't you lean on me,
I wanna talk to you, about Solidarity,
Hey ma! I keep falling on my knees,
And I need you now in Solidarity;
Here we go, into this time zone,
Into the unknown, and I don't know you
You don't know me -
It's such a grand slide,
The big roller coaster ride,
Still you can't understand,
I'm on your side.
Hey kid! don't you lean on me,
I wanna talk to you, about Solidarity,
Hey ma! I keep falling on my knees,
And I need you now in Solidarity;
Big guns, talking from Washington,
To people in Taiwan, Downing Street, London,
NATO and Western Alliance,
News on the hour,
And everyone's screaming:
"We want power!"
Hey kid! don't you lean on me,
I wanna talk to you, about Solidarity,
Hey ma! I keep falling on my knees,
And I need you now in Solidarity;
TV like a face in the mirror,
I ain't a quitter - don't you call me a sinner,
Sometimes - it all seems so futile,
But there's so much that's worthwhile,
And I just want to go on living.
