Tradewinds Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Here I stand looking, looking around me
While all around me, what do I see?
Unhappy faces behind a painted smile
Heartache and loneliness dressed up in modern style

Unhappy people living in sin and shame
Reflections of myself, life is no easy game
We're caught in the trade winds
The trade winds of our time

Here I stand looking, looking around me
While all around me, what do I see?
(Young girls who'll soon become)
Young girls who'll soon become

(Walkers on the avenue)
Streetwalkers in the night
(Young boys of the neighborhood)
Young boys, the restless breed

(Tell me what they're gonna do)
Looking for a fight
(Children who are rich and poor)
Children both rich and poor
They're searching for the truth

If they don't find it
God help tomorrow's youth
We're caught in the trade winds
The trade winds of our time

Aah, the trade, aah, the trade winds
Trade winds of our time

Trade winds are blowing, blowing around me
While all around me, what do I see?
(Hatred, yes and jealously)
Hatred and jealousy

(Brotherhood is dying up)
Brotherhood is dying
(Love is what we really need)
Love is the answer

But nobody's buying
Good people turning bad
Some don't but they are few

The winds are blowing
The choice is all up to you
We're caught in the trade winds
The trade winds of our time

Yes, we're caught up in the trade winds
The trade winds of our time
We are riding on the trade winds
The trade winds of our time

We are riding on the trade winds
The trade winds of our time
