Political World Lyrics

Bettye LaVette featuring Keith Richards
We live in a political world
Love don't have any place
We're living in times

We live in a political world
Courage is a thing of the past
Houses are haunted

The next day could be your last

We live in a political world

We all know for sure that it's real
