about

A rhythmical bluesy song with a Latin feel. Piano, nylon guitar, drums and percussion give this track a friendly uplifting bouncy vibe.

lyrics

How many teardrops have to fall?
How many teardrops have to fall?
I tried to count them, I tried to count them,
but I could not count them all, no no.
I cried and I cried but it's no use, can't wash away these blues.

How many visions of hell must I see?
How many visions of hell must I see?
I see them in my newspaper, in my magazine
and even on my TV, even on my TV.
I cried and I cried but it's no use, can't wash away these blues.

all i ever seem to read about is pain and despair,
there's nothing I can do about it, but I really really care.
There must be some kind of way to end this misery,
if we all get together, if we all get together, then we'll see.

There's so much pain and hatred in the world today.
So much pain and hatred in the world today.
I wish I had the power, I wish I had the power, to take it all away.
I cried and I cried but it's no use,
I cried and I cried but it's no use,
I cried and I cried and cried and cried but it's no use,
can't wash away these blues.

You know i can't wash away these blues.
