I Followed a Homeless Man

Copyright © 1998 Kelli Caldwell


Texte alternatif

I followed a homeless man
I wanted to know this man's real-life story
Where do you go at night
When you duck out of sight?
Do you sleep in a playground
Sheltered under days gone by—
Wrapped in a memory
Of times when life was as it should be?


Will you find your way out?
Your way out?
Your way home?

Will you find your way out?
Your way out?
Your way home?


I followed my homeless man
For an hour at the least
I guess that's what it takes these days
To find a little peace(ful resting place)
How do you choose between
This door and that?
Do you seek out a welcome mat
Hoping that they'll keep their word?
Find warmth from a porch light
If only just to make it through the night?


Will you find your way out?
Your way out?
Your way home?

Will you find your way out?
Your way out?
Your way home?


And in the morning light
I watched my homeless man
Waking up to Never Never Land
I don't mean to pry
But I see you live on cans
Don't you want to try for better life?
And he looked me in the eye


Will you find your way out?
Your way out?
Your way home?

Will you find your way out?
Your way out?

Your way home?
