Someone's child but no one's friend
A city street alone again
Funny how tears don't wash away
Even in December rain

Someone's child you'd never meet
Merchandise on a darkened street
A painted face with a child's eyes
A paradox of sad disguise

When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were You all alone
When did I see You so far away from home

Someone's child now half alive
Lives in a bottle just to survive
Had a home and had a wife
That's a story from a different life

We've all seen him a time or two
He's not all that different from me and you
He's more than a face or a name
He's a reason why You came

When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were You all alone
When did I see You so far away

You say I closed my eyes
You say I closed my heart
I never stopped looking
You say I didn't start

When did I see You cry oh Lord
When were you all alone
When did I see You so far away, so far away, so far away from home

(Repeat Chorus)
