Make No Mistake

I tripped a motion light, exposed a lovers’ kiss,
they did not seem to mind, they did not stop for this,
so maybe love is blind, there goes your proof, I guess..

back down the alleyway, where black and white collide,
then go their separate ways, back to their separate sides,
in this town anyway, we’re easy to divide,
+++ you try to do a little good,
+++ oops, there goes the neighborhood,
+++++ make no mistake, it’s all just borrowed,
+++++ in the morning we’ll wake, left to wonder,
+++++ are our days well spent, or are they squandered?
+++++ in the time that’s left will we discover grace?
+++ make no mistake…

I got home at 3am, walked up 3 flights of stairs,
I stepped into my room & surprised a stranger there,
for just a moment we 2 were equally afraid,
+++ as I stepped back, cried out and shook
+++ he fled the house with what he took,
+++ you try to do a little good,
+++ oops, there goes the neighborhood,
+++++ make no mistake, it’s all just borrowed,
+++++ in the morning we’ll wake, left to wonder,
+++++ are our days well spent, or are they squandered?
+++++ when this time has past will we remember grace?
+++ make no mistake…
