Lyrics
A FAR CRY/A.Y.U.
(Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon)

He was born in New York
On a subway train
Raised up in poverty
(Hell) Don't even have a name
He looks up while he's singing for a quarter
At the girl in a limousine
Reaching out just to touch her
She looks down laughing at him

Waiting waiting every morning
Hoping things are going to change
He can hear her say

All that I've got, all that you're not
You're a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Rich man makes him an offer
Perfect to a poor boys dream
You want the girl, you want the power
Here's a way to be just like me

Sell this crack from off the corner
Fate is waiting here for you, then he says

All that I've got, all that you're not
You're a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Open your eyes don't you realize you're a far cry from love
So impressed with the name you're making
See the neon shine,
Now she's shooting up the love she's faking
Don't you know it's not to late to change your life

All that you've got, maybe you're not
Such a far cry from love
All that you've seen, never you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Take your best shot, know that you're not
Take it from me baby I've been
Such a far cry from love
