Saw a mans home, a box made of cardboard
Frozen to the bone, cant take much more
He says Lord I need help here, send me a strong hand
To lift me from the street, help me to stand

Ive been forgotten, been forsaken
Poisoned by a bottle I could not shake it
Ive been passed over, been rejected

And Im afraid Ill never feel
The warmth of summer come again
Man I am helpless, Im freezing
You were there, you were there

I saw a sick man on a sick bed
Scorned by the world like he had two heads
He says Im a man here dying a cruel death
I'm cut off from the world, man it was so sad

He was suffering, he was ailing
Tortured by his fate, his body was failing
He says Im an outcast, left defenseless

And Im afraid that Ill be dead
Before the summer comes again
Ive been rejected, man I am dying
You were there, you were there

Saw a rich man alone in a dark house
A prison made of gold he could not break out
He says my life is aimless, it just seems pointless
Boredom truly kills, man I am hopeless

I got diamonds, I got houses
I got silver clouds and silver spoons to match it
Ive come up empty, man I am desperate

And I never want to feel
The warmth of summer come again
Ill be forgotten, my life is over
You were there, you were there
You were there, Lord, you were there
