we can’t end this way lyrics – ben harper

there’s a man on the corner
begging for help
there’s a man that walks past him
and he’s drowning in wealth
who doesn’t understand
how disappointment destroys the soul

every look of shame
is a wound that will never heal
what has he done to deserve this
what have i done to deserve this
it’s easy to remember
but it’s easier to forget
life has a way of getting in our way

i don’t want to go my way
if you’re not going my way
so i guess that means
i’ll be going your way
i will lead or follow
beg steal or borrow
just for one more day

we can’t end this way
