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.

(Bridge:)
The young have problems, many problems;
We need an understanding heart.
Why don't they help us, try and 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.

(Instrumental Interlude: first 2 lines of verse)

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.

(Coda:)
No, it isn't very pretty what a town without pity
Can do.
