Going through this life looking for angels
People passing by 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 we will be deaf to the answers

There's so much bigotry, misunderstanding and fear
With eyes squinted and fists clinched we reach out for what is dear

We want it we want
We want a reason to live

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

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

So many nations with so many hungry people
So many homeless scrounging around for dirty needles
On the rise, teen suicide, when we will realize
We've been desensitized by the lies of the world

We're 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

Who can help protect the innocence of our children
Stolen on the internet with images they can't forget

We want it we want
We want a reason to live

We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation
To let love be our light and salvation

We need it we need
We need more than this

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

I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet
Sent 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 your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
In the midst of the most painful faces
Angels show up in the strangest of places
(Angels show up in the strangest of 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

    This song really got to me last night. It shows what a mess out country is really in. Most people dont care. We should be worried about or fellow nations also. We have to live up to this world and give it our all.. These lyrics are going on my facebook page. If you have one add me under kenda chevelle robinson.
