Song Description

About my reaction to homeless people and the disturbing questions it raises.

Story Behind the Song

Based on my encounters with street people in Boston.

Lyrics

Poor man lookin' for a place to sleep
Askin' me for somethin' to eat
Don't have time to talk with him
I'm on my way to my brand new gym.

Sun's beatin' down upon his face
The lines its made are filled with grace
He's askin' me for a little time
All I smell is cheap old wine

Chorus:
Why can't I hear him callin'?
What makes me run away from him?
Why do I keep on walkiin'?
What makes me think I'm not like him?

Winter's comin' all too fast
I don't think he's gonna last
He's tellin' me "Hey, I'm freezin' cold"
I stare at him for being so bold

Chorus

Spring is here, the snow is gone
I look for him but something's wrong
The place he sat is now a hole
The Big Dig swallowed up his soul

Chorus
