Tracy Chapman

Behind The Wall

Last night I heard the screaming
Loud voices behind the wall
Another sleepless night for me
It won’t do no good to call
The police
Always come late
If they come at all

And when they arrive
They say they can’t interfere
With domestic affairs
Between a man and his wife
And as they walk out the door
The tears well up in her eyes

Last night I heard the screaming
Then a silence that chilled my soul
I prayed that I was dreaming
When I saw the ambulance in the road

And the policeman said
’I’m here to keep the peace
Will the crowd disperse
I think we all could use some sleep’

    we cracked up when we heard this at my drama society where we enjoy to recreate classic pieces of modern culture we also enjoy to lick cats

    these are very emotionally words but at the same time very funny to listen to as in drama we listened to it and cracked up.
