Lyrics:

Nobody Won
A. Grattan

A child is abused, no one can hear
How she hurts, her inner fear
He was not right and she was not wrong
The system failed and nobody won
__________
A man on a bus, heading for home
Another on the bus, so all alone
One was not right and the other not wrong
The system failed and nobody won
__________
Chorus
A best-kept secret, a family shame
No one to tell, no one to blame
A broken bone, well that's OK
Speak of the stigma, no, not today
__________

A threat is made, an officer comes
One has a knife, one has a gun
Neither was right and neither was wrong
The system failed and nobody won
__________
They see no hope, only despair
No one calls, no one cares
One way out, it's final it's done
The system failed and nobody won
__________
Chorus
A best-kept secret, a family shame
No one to tell, no one to blame
A broken bone, well that's OK
Speak of the stigma, no, not today
