lyrics

Verse 1:
I know a story
Told by the heartaches of yesterday
I know a city
Built by the hands on shame
I know a people
Who will be known
By how they will
And how they have overcome

Chorus:
Have you seen worse things
Than being alone
Have you seen worse things
Than losing your way home
Is it true what they told me
That a blind man believes
What you tell him
If he has never seen
If he has never seen

Verse 2:
So, show me the way it ought to be
Could you show me family
Could you show me peace
I've yet to find one
Who doesn't bleed like you and me
Could you show me the way
Oh, Father please
Show me the way
Oh, Father please

Bridge/Outro:
What's having a friend
If you ain't got no peace
What's having a home
Without a family
(Repeat)
Show me a friend
Show me peace
Show me a home
Show me a family
(Repeat)
I need a friend
I need peace
I need a home
I need a family
(Repeat)
Show me a friend
Show me peace
Show me a home
Show me a family
I need a friend
I need peace
I need a home
I need a family
