why are all the children crying?
can't we see their world is dying?
alone

we pushed them out into the streets
did it all through lies and deceit
alone, they are so alone

they turn to us for healing hands
we pass them by, in the world they stand
alone

we close our eyes to what they're feeling
how can they live in a life without meaning
alone, why are they alone?

who's going to keep their dream alive
can't you see the pain growing in their eyes
people say it's much too late
what's going to happen at heaven's gate?

We've got to reach out for the children
Let them know that life's worth livin'
Put aside our selfish pride
Before this world runs out of time

alone

------------------
does anybody know
does anybody care
what are the words
we're attempting to share

Chris,
This was really good, and I agree with you, there are too many children living their lives alone with no adult reassurance, no one to look up to. You touched upon an issue we all need to think really hard about. Thank you for sharing it!
