'Looking For Angels'

Walk this world alone,

Try to stay on my feet,
Sometimes crawl, fall, but I stand up cause I’m afraid to sleep,
Open my eyes to a new day with all new problems and all new pain,
All the faces are filled with so much anger,
Losing our dignity and hope from fear of danger,
After all the wars,
After settling the scores,
At the break of dawn will we be deaf to the answers,
There’s so much bigotry, misunderstanding, and fear,
With our eyes squinted and fists clenched we reach out for what is dear,
 
WE WANT IT, WE WANT, WANT A REASON TO LIVE…
 
‘Going through this life,
Looking for angels,
People passing by,
Looking for angels,
Walking down the Streets,
Looking for angels,
Everyone I meet,
Looking for angels.’
 
We’re on a pilgrimage,
A crusade for hope,
Cause in our hearts and minds and souls we know,
 
WE NEED IT, WE NEED, WE NEED MORE THAN THIS…
 
So many nations, with so many hungry people,
So many homeless, scrounging around for dirty needles,
On the rise, teen suicide,
When will we realize,
We’ve been desensitized by the lies of this world,
We are oppressed and impressed by the greedy,
Whose hands squeeze the life out of the needy,
When will we learn that wars, threats, and regrets are the cause and effect of living in fear,
 
WE WANT IT, WE WANT, WE WANT A REASON TO LIVE…
 
‘Going through this life,
Looking for angels,
People passing by,
Looking for angels,
Walking down the Streets,
Looking for angels,
Everyone I meet,
Looking for angels.’
 
 
We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation,
To let love be out light and salvation,
 
WE NEED IT, WE NEED, WE NEED MORE THAN THIS…
 
I became a savior to some kids I’ll never meet,
Send a check in the mail to buy them something to eat,
What will you do to make a difference? To make a change?
What will you do to help someone along the way?
Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek,
Pray for you enemies, humble yourself, love’s starring back at me,
In the midst of the most painful faces,
Angels show up in the strangest places…
 
‘Going through this life,
Looking for angels,
People passing by,
Looking for angels,
Walking down the Streets,
Looking for angels,
Everyone I meet,
Looking for angels.’
 
‘Going through this life,
Looking for angels,
People passing by,
Looking for angels,
Walking down the Streets,
Looking for angels,
Everyone I meet,
Looking for angels.’
 
…Angels show up in the strangest places…
