oh, how lonely you feel when your left behind
feel that strange feeling in the bottom of your stomach
oh, why must people always let me down?
feeling like i can make it on my own.
i want to feel the love a mother gives
i want to be hugged in a fathers strong arms
i will never ask for anything other than this
but mabey...just mabey for a friend?
oh, how beaten down you feel on the streets
feel that cops club whack against your body
just because of your race & the color of your skin
oh, why must life go so bad like this?
feeling like i just want to go home.
i want to feel the safety of walls and roof
i want to be able to sleep and not be afraid
i will never asked for another thing again
but mabey...just mabey for a dog?
yes, i came from somewhere in this world
my mom and dad have seemed to disapear
they got sick and took a bus straight upwards
now i am here on this concrete all alone
all i am asking for is a second chance at a home.
