Lyrics

“Got a quarter” he asks “Any change
I need to get back home again”
You heard it before but you can’t say no
Could be someone from long ago

He’s a forgotten man so alone
A forgotten man with a cardboard home
Roams the streets glazed eyes
Seeing no one the good life denied

Has a brother out there
A sister too
Has a mother somewhere
A father he never knew
Had a lover one time
Can’t recall her name
Had a job at the plant
But couldn’t play that game

In his hazy memory there was joy
In his hazy memory a smiling boy
Was this a choice he doesn’t know
Lost his meaning long ago

Has a brother out there
A sister too
Has a mother somewhere
A father he never knew
Had a lover one time
Can’t recall her name
Had a job at the plant
But couldn’t play that game

His eyes stare in mine I give him a five
His hand trembles his face comes alive
“Do I know you” I say “We’re we friends one day”
A look of confusion as he slips away

He’s a forgotten man so alone
A forgotten man with a cardboard home
Roams the streets glazed eyes
Seeing no one the good life denied
denied denied
