I saw him shaking his change in a coffee cup Asked for a dollar but I told the man to give it up Said he's hungry I dont think that it's true I bet my dollar he'd just spend it on booze I turned my back on him and began to walk away But then I heard a little voice inside me say What if it's really true? What if he's hungry? What if it's not for him? Does he have a family?
How'd you get here How'd you end up on the street Where did you go wrong Wonder what I'd do if it were me
Chorus: A new point of view A walk in your shoes I wish I could get inside your head To see what you see When you look at me Cause I could have lived your life instead
Verse2: It was 90 degrees in the Summer heat She was veiled in black all the way down to her feet This is America doesn't she know Somebody take her shopping buy her some clothes She came up to me I didn't understand a word I was about to leave then another thought occurred She must be really lost scared and frustrated I should try again to see what she's saying
How'd you get here How'd you get so far from home What was it that made you leave Wonder what I'd do if it were me
Chorus: A new point of view A walk in your shoes I wish I could get inside your head To see what you see when you look at me Cause I could have lived your life instead
I wanna see oh see what you see And I wanna feel oh feel just what you feel
