Oh, I hand them this life to do what they will
They've got to find their way from here
Oh, show us the way
If they only knew
Oh, show us the light
Oh, show them what light?

It shines from within, they make your own day
They make your own night and sometimes they win
Oh, show us the way
But they always get through
Oh, show us the light

Oh, why do they come and ask for more?
They've got stars they don't have wishes for
They're just givin' up their blame to me
Oh, how do the fools survive?

I'm wonderin' why, I'm wonderin' how?
They're gonna bail themselves out now
Oh, give us this day
I'm shakin' my head
Oh, keep us through night

Oh, I hand them this life to do what they will
They've got to make their way from here
Oh, show us the way
If they only knew
Oh, show us the light

Oh, why do they come and ask for more?
They've got stars they don't have wishes for
They're just givin' up their blame to me
Oh, how do the fools survive?

It's not like it was before
When they call I won't come running
It was so long ago
I left them on their own

Oh, how do the fools survive?

Oh, how can they come and ask for more?
They've got stars they don't have wishes for
They're just givin' up their blame to me
Oh, how do the fools survive?
