Lyrics

She's poor but she's honest
She begs but she don't steal ?She offers me a blessing
In exchange for her next meal ?She must know what I'm thinking
The words that I don't say ?If I don't acknowledge you
Perhaps you'll go away
Go away ?I wish she'd go away ??I see him on my corner
Cardboard for his bed ?He holds a conversation
With the voices in his head ?I like to think he has a home
A family somewhere ?I pass him every day
Pretend that he's not there ?He's not there ?I wish he wasn't there ??Where do I go
With this responsibility?Who do I turn to
To set my conscience free ?How can your eyes
Touch a perfect stranger ?The burden of your life
Does it really ?Does it really rest on me?This responsibility ?Does really rest on me ?This responsibility ?
She holds a baby to her breast
Her hand reaches to me ?She asks not for herself
But for her hungry family ?I lose her voice so easily
Within the city sounds ?But the cooing of a baby
Makes me stop and turn around ?I turn around ?Thank God I turn around ??Where do I go
With this responsibility?Who do I turn to
To set my conscience free ?How can your eyes
Touch a perfect stranger ?The burden of your life
Does it really ?Does it really rest on me?This responsibility ?Does really rest on me
I believe, I believe, I believe
It rests on me?This responsibility
I believe, I believe, I believe
It rests on me
This responsibility
?I believe, I believe, I believe
It rests on me
I believe, I believe, I believe
It rests on me...
