Come Out and Play

Sweet girl, hiding behind the sunshine
Won't you come out and play?

The streets are strewn with thousands of broken hearts
And the bare windows reflect bare faces
But, won't you come out and play?

Bring your doll and skip on the pavements.
Run down the lanes and laugh out loud.
So what if the puddle flows red
And the wind brings poisonous tales of deceit and hate
Come out of your corner, come out and play.

These mannequins walking past have doctored their emotions beyond what once was human.
Don't be afraid of their serpentine shadows
Little girl, come out of the eclipse.
Come out and play.

Come fill my sky with hope
Of beauty in a godless world
Of music in a town gone deaf
Of diamond dust sparkling up this life so grey and faded.

My darling girl, don't be afraid.
Come out and play.
