about

New single by Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Layla Frankel. Written in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, "TLC" features emotive vocals, contemplative and poetic lyricism, and above all a call for "tender lovin' care" in a tumultuous political and social climate.

Music and Lyrics by Layla Frankel, engineered by Alex DeVor. Featuring Layla Frankel on guitar and vocals, and Alex DeVor on Keys.

lyrics

Couldn't hear alarm bells ringing
never saw the danger signs,
when misery comes calling
we're at the mercy of mankind.

And this is just another season,
another year we'll soon forget.
You can raise a child to reason
but you can't teach them self respect.

You know the reckoning's in sight
armed with emotions though we never learned to fight
our cup of sorrow is full enough to share
but all we're really looking for is tender lovin' care
oh all we're looking for is tender lovin' care

It's gonna take a fierce battalion
to disengage old fashioned rules,
set out to find out future leaders
in the hallways of their highs chools.

They say the body's just a vesel
a place where hearts and minds collide.
While God is slipping through our pockets,
can we say faith is on our side?

You know the reckoning's in sight.
Armed with emotions though we never learned to fight.
Our cup of sorrow is full enough to share
but all we're really looking for is tender lovin' care,
oh all we're looking for is tender lovin' care.
