Where do I go from here The money`s gone So`s the wife Need a reason to change my life I walk the streets alone at night Thinking out loud What do I do to make it right Fought the wars a thousand years Too old too tired to care Impossible now to believe in prayer From one corner to the next Like straying sheep I am led Looking for a home A place to lie my head Can`t sing for money Don`t know the beat Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall I live on the street They pass me by Never stopping to speak Just stare and point I am a sideshow freak Don`t know the day No watch to tell the time Very few words do I say Why am I here What was my crime Where`s the man in charge Who do I see I`ll fill out the form That sets me free No ticket for the bus The train ran off the track Click my heels 3 times Show me the way back I`m not alone Thousands of others like me The homeless armies Not invisible Open your eyes and see Are you my savior Any miracles left for me Does God exist If so Show me for all to see Too cold here to be hell No angels to open the gate Walking the streets Appears to be my fate For most of my life Full speed ahead Nothing to fear Could do no wrong I saw the future all too clear Only a fool knows all A wise man opens his eyes to see When the train stops Where will he be Never made plans for the future Thought my world was in place Saw the end of the rainbow As plain as the nose on my face A thousand times a day I ask myself the question why What sin did I commit Who did I make cry No answers to my pleas Silent voices ringing in my ears No relief for the weary Been walking these streets for years My angel of mercy The cop on the beat Closes his eyes Allows me to sleep on the street Darkness is my enemy When I close my eyes to sleep Never know what the day will bring Will I awaken from the deep Nobody to share my covers Alone too long to know Afraid to ask the question Are you friend or are you foe Despair and lonliness My two best friends Breaks your heart And captures your soul These two powerful emotions Take their toll Where do I go from here I see the future all too clear Walking the streets alone at night Obvious to me I`ve lost the fight
