As you walk along the sidewalks of the city
You see a man with hunger in his face
And all around you crumbling buildings and graffiti
As you bend down to tie your shoelace

Sirens scream but you don't listen
You have to reach home before night
But now the sun beats down
It makes the sidewalks glisten
And somehow you just don't feel right

Hold me baby, give me some faith
Let me know you're there
Let me touch your face
Give me love give me grace
Tell me good things
Tell me that my world is safe

You pass by bars with empty stages
Three o'clock drinkers fall by
Chairs are placed on top of tables
As you brush the hair out of your eyes

A woman stops you with a question
So you drop some money in her hand
She sleeps in doorways and bus stations
And you'll never understand

Hold me baby, give me some faith
Let me know you're there
Let me touch your face
Give me love give me grace
Tell me good things
Tell me that my world is safe
