Song Description

About homelessness and our reaction to it.

Story Behind the Song

Seeing a homeless person holding a sign saying "Hungry and Cold" at the end of a freeway ramp.



Standing with my sign
At the end of the ramp
The wind swirling
And the ground is damp.

Sitting in your car
You're looking straight ahead.
And I can see
The thoughts move in your head.

And, yeah, you're right.


So many things I could have been
All the things I should have done.
Yeah, I know my story's getting old
But, tonight
I'm hungry
And cold.

Working on the line
Until the sun went blue
Moving up the ranks
I was just like you

I sat in my car
And I looked straight ahead
Read all the signs
And drove off instead.

Was I right?


Walking on the road
With my life in a bag.
Memory swirling
Over things I had

Nothing in my life
Goin' straight ahead
All I love
Just drove off instead.

Was that right?
