Peace Screams

As I lay resting
Trouble follows me around
As she lay resting
Peace screams; no sound

She wanted to go dancing
Drinking and to have fun
She was now expecting
I wanted to save some
She wanted her friend
To move right on in
A house built on love
Let the end now begin

As the moments passed
The further she walked away
Less did I now see her
As she danced nights away
She now found old feelings
That drove her his way
Ya we’ll work things out
As I lay many nights alone

I didn’t believe her
We will work things out
She didn’t believe me
As I walked on out
She went back to another
Little sister took me in
A paper wanting nothing
From a lawyer’s hand

As I lay resting
Ya nights spent alone
God has changed things
Peace screams; no sound
