    Empty Pockets

    Sarah watches snow begin to fly
    <br>she remembers this time last year
    <br>The missions were closed
    <br>no place to go
    <br>in broken boots and threadbare clothes
    <br>
    <br>Andy said never mind
    <br>we both know what it means
    <br>we can sleep on the street
    <br>but I've still got our dreams
    <br>in my pockets
    <br>in my empty pockets
    <br>no one can take
    <br>anything they can not see
    <br>no one can take
    <br>my love away from me
    <br>in my pockets
    <br>my empty pockets
    <br>
    <br>Andy took her undernieth his wings
    <br>found her a doorway, a corner to sleep
    <br>When Sarah was cold
    <br>he said "here take my coat"
    <br>his generousity is not lost
    <br>on those who know
    <br>
    <br>but
    <br>Andy said never mind
    <br>we both know what it means
    <br>we can sleep on the street
    <br>but I've still got our dreams
    <br>in my pockets
    <br>in my empty pockets
    <br>no one can take
    <br>anything they can not see
    <br>no one can take
    <br>my love away from me
    <br>my pockets
    <br>my empty pockets
    <br>
    <br>
    <br>Andy wandered all the way downtown
    <br>No one knew his name when he was found
    <br>But Sarah, she dreamed, of warm angel wings
    <br>and a voice said " you'll never be far away from me."
    <br>
    <br>it said never mind
    <br>we both know what it means
    <br>we can sleep on the street
    <br>but I've still got our dreams
    <br>in my pockets
    <br>in my empty pockets
    <br>no one can take
    <br>anything they can not see
    <br>no one can take
    <br>my love away from me
    <br>my pockets
    <br>my empty pockets
    <br>
    <br>And Sarah watches snow begin to fly
    <br>she remembers this time last year

    RE: Empty Pockets

    I had to look at the author twice on this one, lol. "Didn't I just write Empty Pockets?" ;)
    <br>
    <br>Thanks for sharing that. The first and last lines made me think of Cindy Lou Hoo from "The Grinch." ...That picture of innocence, ya know? And it's sad to think of what some people face during the winter.

    RE: Empty Pockets

    I wondered if it was the other one reposted.
    <br>
    <br>The lyrics are really touching, sad but it makes you feel grateful for the things in your own life at the same time. Reminds me a bit of some of Springsteen's songs, the style and the message in the lyrics. Great song. :)

    RE: Empty Pockets

    BV,
    <br>
    <br>Had to go away and get my emotions in check after this one. WOW!
    <br>
    <br>my last year working for City of Long Beach, our dept. was the unlucky ones that had to clear away the homeless camps from the LA river. The dept. and the city refused to help them find shelter. those meager belongings where all they had and they wanted us to take that away too. some of us refused to. it was one of the "acts of insubordnation" they used to fire me.
    <br>
    <br>i'd do it again.
    <br>
    <br>take care,
    <br>

    thanks
    <br>
    <br>I'm suprised at the emotional reactions I've gotten from people when I've performed this one out....a good sign I'd say.
    <br>
    <br>
    <br>thanks

    COME ON! Let's Join Up!
    Let's rise out of this dirt
    Escape from this oppression this anger and this hurt
    The ignorance, intolerance, stupidity and lies
    That's spreading like a virus and ruining our lives
    All we need is honesty to push away this night
    Lets hang on to our innocence and hold each other tight
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
