Lyrics:

SAL

I know you’re trying to protect me
Searching for another truth
With your language and your poetry
From my ignorance and youth
Hey, I did not come to argue
My life never made much sense
I just wish that I could hug you
You’re my only defense

I don’t understand you’re writing
I can barely sign my name,
All I ever learned was fighting
But I’m not the only one to blame
The streets were dark with danger
I had to stand up for my friends
In a land where I’m a stranger
And the hatred never ends

©1997 Lyrics by Paul Simon and Derek Walcott
