Mother doesn't know where love has gone

She says it must be youth that keeps us feeling strong

I see it in her face that's turned to ice

And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice

And now I know what they're saying as our sun begins to fade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades



Father made my history

He thought for what he thought would set us somehow free

They taught me what to say in school

I learned it off my heart but now that's torn in two

And now I know what they're saying in the music of the parade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades



Born on different sides of life

We feel the same and feel all of this strife

So come to me when I'm asleep

We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets

And now I know what they're saying as the drums begin to fade

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades



Oh turn around and I'll be there

There's a scar right through my heart but I'll bear it again

Oh I thought we were the human race

But we were just another borderline case

And the stars reach down and tell us there's always one escape



I don't know where love has gone

And in this troubled land desperation keeps us strong

Fridays child is full of soul

With nothing left to lose there's everything to go

And now I know what they're saying it's a terrible beat we made

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades



And now I know what they're saying as our hearts go to their graves

And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades
