Tracy Chapman, 1989

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

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 interfear 
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." 

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
