    Lyrics

    I saw him shaking his change in a coffee cup
    Asked for a dollar but I told the man to give it up
    Said he's hungry I don't think that's true
    I bet my dollar he'd just go spend it on booze
    I turned my back on him and began to walk away
    But then I heard a little voice inside me say
    What if it's really true what if he's hungry
    What if it's not for him, does he have a family

    How'd you get here
    How'd you end up on the street
    Where did it go wrong
    Wonder what I'd do if it were me

    A new point of view
    A walk in your shoes
    I wish I could get inside your head
    To see what you see
    When you look at me
    Cause I could've lived your life instead

    It was 90 degrees in the summer heat
    She was veiled in black all the way down to her feet
    This is America doesn't she know
    Somebody take her shopping, buy her some clothes
    She came up to me, I didn't understand a word
    I was about to leave then another thought occurred
    She might be really lost, scared and frustrated
    I should try again to see what she's saying

    How'd you get here
    How'd you get so far from home
    What was it that made you leave
    Wonder what I'd do if it were me

    A new point of view
    A walk in your shoes
    I wish I could get inside your head
    To see what you see
    When you look at me
    Cause I could've lived your life instead

    I want to see....see what you see
    And I want to feel.... feel just what you feel

    A new point of view
    A walk in your shoes
    I wish I could get inside your head
    To see what you see
    When you look at me
    Cause I could've lived your life instead (2x)
