Take Good Care


July 2012: Singer-songwriter and actor Joss Stone, war photographer Paul Conroy and musician and producer Dave Stewart are calling on world leaders gathering at the United Nations to deliver an effective Arms Trade Treaty as they launch a new version of the song ‘Take Good Care’.

‘Take Good Care’ was co-written by Paul Conroy – who was seriously injured earlier this year in Homs, Syria – and Joss Stone, and produced by Dave Stewart. The song is being released in support of Amnesty International’s call upon world leaders to deliver an effective and robust international Arms Trade Treaty.

Conroy wrote the song in response to the devastating impact upon people’s lives of armed violence and conflict in Misrata, Libya. He said:

"Having covered armed conflicts up close I have seen the sickening human toll of a world awash in weapons and military hardware that are too easily obtained. The brutality is the same no matter where it occurs. The only sane response is to control this unregulated flow of weapons once and for all by adopting an effective global Arms Trade Treaty now."
Take Good Care
Take good care,
Don't push the buttons
Lives so precious
When you're standing in the firing line

You don't know me
But I seen you
Oh, so high and mighty shooting at some friends of mine

Just take good care,
Don't push the buttons
Lives so precious,
When you're standing in the firing line

Too much blood
Too many tears shed
Just how much before the man turns our souls to dust
Have you had enough

Just take good care please,
Don't push the buttons
Lives so precious,
When you're standing in the firing line
