Behind the Wall - Tracy Chapman

    Last night I heard the screaming
    Loud voices behind the wall
    Another sleepless night for me
    It won't do no good to call
    The police
    Always come late if they come at all


    And when they arrive
    They say they can't interfere
    With domestic affairs
    Between a man and his wife
    And as they walk out the door
    The tears well up in her eyes

    Last night I heard the screaming
    Then a silence that chilled my soul
    Prayed that I was dreaming
    When I saw the ambulance in the road

    And the policeman said
    "I'm here to keep the peace
    Will the crowd disperse
    I think we all could use some sleep"
