Song Description

The song expresses one person's outrage about poverty and inequality and provides a reminder that ultimately everyone will be the same.

Story Behind the Song

The song was inspired through the writer's first hand exposure to poverty and inequality in urban and rural slums and the recognition that in the end we share the same humanity.

Lyrics

Someday You Will Know My Name
By Douglas E. Adair and Fred Barreto © 2004

Verse 1
The cars go past but they don?t see
Me living here with my family
My house is just a cardboard shack
Everything I own can fit a plastic sack

Verse 2
The chemicals that stain the ground
Burn our eyes and turn the water brown
My wife is sick, my son can?t walk
My little girl may never talk

Verse 3
I am but one among of the faceless poor
Who scrounge for scraps outside your door
And though you do not know my face
Someday you will know my name

Chorus
Someday you will know my name
Someday there will come a change
Someday we will be the same
Someday you will feel my pain
Someday you will bear my shame
Someday you will know my name

Bridge
When my children cry for food each night
I pray to God they see the morning light
What have we done to deserve this fate?
How can we allow this terrible state?
Someday you will know my name

Chorus
Someday you will know my name
Someday there will come a change
Someday we will be the same
Someday you will feel my pain
Someday you will bear my shame
Someday you will know my name
