Barbra Streisand- Fired Up!

To see ordinary people and celebrities using their voice to cope with our troubled times, gives me so much hope for the future. I feel I belong, I feel I am one of them -even so, my voice is more of a whisper in the blogging world. 

Don’t lie to me – Barbra Streisand (New Album “Walls)

Why can’t you just tell me the truth?
Hard to believe the things you say
Why can’t you feel the tears I cried today?
Cried today, cried today
How do you win if we all lose?
You change the facts to justify
Your lips move but your words get in the way
In the way, in the way

Kings and Queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Head and heart, on our knees
You can’t see what we all see

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

You can build towers of bronze and gold
You can build castles in the sky
You can use smoke and mirrors, old clichés
Not today, not today

Kings and Queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Head on heart, down on knees
You can’t see what everyone sees

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

Can’t you see I’m crying?
Can’t you see we’re crying?
Where’s the new horizon?
Where’s the new horizon?
