Another song for a lost soul, these cases never cease to amaze me that there are people in this world who could do such terrible things.

We were asked to write a song for Karley by a friend of Karley's family. We read the details of what happened to this beautiful, innocent pup and of course there was no question we would try to write a song that would speak out against the terrible act of barbaric cruelty that lead to Karley losing her life.

I wrote some lyrics after reading the message from Karley's family friend Lynda. Then I read Karley's story to Paul and he immediately picked up his guitar in anger and he started strumming it, saying to me, 'you know sometimes I pick up this guitar like it's a weapon when we're defending animals with our music' and I said 'you know Paul you're right, that's exactly what we're doing'. Sometimes it seems the only way to make any sense of the horror we hear about day in and day out. If only we didn't have to write songs for animals that are used and abused by uncaring people, for the bereaved and the broken. But we are glad we can do something to help and we hope Karley's song will be a happy sound, the sound of her life when she was loved and carefree and living, fit and healthy with not a care in the world except for playing with her family and her toys.

Karley's song is for the struggle to win her justice and we want it to be like a picture of the day before she was so cruelly cut down and killed.

*Karley*

Karley how could anybody hurt you dear?
I only have to see your face to feel the tears
So young and sweet and carefree playing puppy games
Your innocence is pure as life, a candle flame.

No reason to explain why one so young should die
Why brutal hands took hold of you, put out the light
Go gently in the arms of love eternal rest
And know that we will fight for you, we'll do our best.

Karley in the sunshine
Karley we call your name
Karley for the good times
There's gonna come a brighter day
The one who hurt you gotta pay
Justice gotta be the word we pray.

Karley there's a world within a world of pain
And sometimes human beings work in evil ways
They cannot always see the love before their eyes
Loss is hurt and hurt is loss to realise

We must stay strong and hope and pray for better days
To teach the ones who missed the call along the way
Show the world the precious care for living things
A message in our sorrow surely kindness brings.

Karley in the sunshine
Karley we call your name
Karley for the good times
There's gonna come a brighter day
The one who hurt you gotta pay
Justice gotta be the word we pray.
Karley in the sunshine
Karley we call your name
Karley for the good times
There's gonna come a brighter day
The one who hurt you gotta pay
Justice gotta be the word we pray.

Won't you hear it now, won't you hear it now
C'mon!
