Song Description

Song about poverty and living on the streets.

Broadjam Member Reviews

good intro, i really liked it and set the song up well, had a 1980/1990 feel from the old disco, dance genre. the music and production is well put together with some well chosen sounds and a decent groove. Moving onto the lyrics this has a religious message with a relaxed laid back delivery from the singer

    - lost on foot

This is very interesting in a rhythmic sense - the off-beat snare drum in the verse is super cool. The vocal has a very cool, almost jazz vibe super imposed over a slick R/B keyboard pattern. The keyboardist is a monster - kind of like Steely Dan meets Richard Marx (I mean that as a super compliment). There is a lot to listen to here, and it is very captivating.

    - The Bitter Elegance
Lyrics

When you're next down town
and ya gotta get the latest must have jimmy choos
Don't forget where you came from little girl (you're so lucky)
There's a crowd, of folks who, are in need of a little comfort and some food
Don't forget where you came from little girl (you're so lucky)

There but for the grace of God
There but for the grace of God go I
Looking for a place to sleep as we just drive on by
Looking at the face of God
Looking at the face of God and I
Will not turn the other cheek and keep on walking by

If the streets were your home
and you stop to ask why this life has failed you
Don't forget to help them little girl (you're so lucky)
'Cos fate could deal a bad hand
and you find yourself wishing you just had a friend
Don't forget to help them little girl (you're so lucky)

There but for the grace of God
There but for the grace of God go I
Looking for a place to sleep as we just drive on by
Looking at the face of God
Looking at the face of God and I
Will not turn the other cheek and keep on walking by

If you took all that you have
and you gave it all away would you still be the same
Don't forget to think of them little girl (you're so lucky)
What you need money can't buy
and the most important lesson to learn is that love
and kindness make the difference little girl (you're so lucky)

Looking at the face of God
Looking at the face of God and I
Will not turn the other cheek and keep on walking by

There but for the grace of God
There but for the grace of God go I
Looking for a place to sleep as we just drive on by
Looking at the face of God
Looking at the face of God and I
Will not turn the other cheek and keep on walking by
