Town Without Pity

Lara Stone, right, is overcome with emotion as news of the override vote is announced as Nicole Heaney, center, and Beckie Schnakenberg look on.
JOHN SLADEWSKI/The Standard-Times

When you're young and so in love as we

And bewildered by the world we see

Why do people hurt us so

Only those in love would know

What a town without pity can do

If we stop to gaze upon a star

People talk about how bad we are

Ours is not an easy age

We're like tigers in a cage

What a town without pity can do

The young have problems, many problems

We need an understanding heart

Why don't they help us, try to help us

Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

Take these eager lips and hold me fast

I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last

How can we keep love alive

How can anything survive

When these little minds tear you in two

What a town without pity can do

How can we keep love alive

How can anything survive

When these little minds tear you in two

What a town without pity can do

No, it isn't very pretty

What a town without pity can do

-D. Tiomkin and N. Washington (you've heard Gene Pitney)
