lyrics

There But For The Grace Of God I Go

He’d give up anything just to share his history
No surprise, his joys and pains, same as you and me
But on the streets
he mostly settles for
Here’s some money get yourself something to eat

There in his eyes
a humanness goes unrecognized
More than survive
The luxuries of the lucky kind
There but for the grace of God I go

Before the moment came
when you turned and looked away
he had favorite bands and books
candles on the cake
Then thunder struck
with a massive blow
and so much heavier than the making of his luck

There in his eyes
a longing just to be recognized
More than survive
A foolish dream never realized
There but for the grace of God I go

There in his eyes
a humanness goes unrecognized
More that survive
Ashamed to dare such a rich desire
There but for the grace of God I go
