After The Hurt Is Gone (Strangeways)

Billy left when he heard the call He knew it would come some day Someone's fight he believed to be right For freedom of lands far away The battle cry and the beat of the drum Won the hearts of so many like him There's no justice when you live by the gun You can't turn back, there's no turning back After the hurt is gone I know I'll never run to the beat of the drum I know we can't be strong Until we learn to give, we learn to live, again All alone as the shadows fall You've lost all your will to survive How could so many have been so wrong Was it the glory or was it the pride You don't know why you've gone this far All you know is the fear of the gun There's only pain when the love is gone And you know it's wrong, you know it's wrong After the hurt is gone I know I'll never run to the beat of the drum And I know we can't be strong Until we learn to give, we learn to live, again As he looked out across the hills He knew he would never be the same No battle cry, no beat of the drum No turning back, no turning back After the hurt is gone I know I'll never run to the beat of the drum I know we can't be strong Until we learn to give, we learn to live After the hurt is gone I know I'll never run to the beat of the drum I know we can't be strong Until we learn to live, we learn to give After the hurt is gone I know I'll never run to the beat of the drum I know we can't be strong Until we learn to give, we learn to live After the hurt is gone
