Consider (What's Going On), by Allison McCulloch
Consider (What's Going On)
 

Like Cyndi Lauper/Ramones/ Madonna

   
I can't say a word but you're hurting me
A silent cry can be heard indeed
Maybe you could listen or just turn away
Your excuse is to ignore me is I should speak up to say

Chorus:
It's not alright, I'm lost in the crowd
I want to speak to you out loud
Don't care if the whole world hears me
Don't care if you want to be free
Consider
What's been happening for so long
Consider
Consider What's Going On

A girl at church said she is on drugs
I knew they'd only pray for what she does
The pastor says call if you're in need
But I never wanted the burden to be me

You think this child is going through a phase
 BGV: She'll get over it
Gotta talk to her before it's too late
 BGV: She won't get over it
She's trying to speak, she's trying to tell
You it's in shambles, all's not well

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
Well it's too later
I'm sad for eternity
But look around
And save the one
You KNOW is in need

It's not alright, I'm lost in the crowd
I want to speak to you out loud
Don't care if the whole world hears me
Don't care if you want to be free
From guilt, from blame
from feeling the same
Consider
What's been happening for so long
Consider
Consider What's Going On

End:
Consider
Consider
Consider
Consider
