lyrics

A mother cries in Africa
Thirsty to her bones
Here in New York City
All you see are cellphones
A bomb goes off in London town
And echoes down in Spain
Here in New York City lots of folks in pain

I’m feeling so low with the weight of this world
I really don’t know about the hate of this world
I wish that I could go and just say to this world
It isn’t too late to love

A child dies in India but it don’t make the news
I’m in New York City
Trying to paint with all these blues
An earthquake rattles Tokyo and leaves an unclear stain
I’m in New York City just trying to make a train

I’m feeling so low with the weight of this world
I really don’t know about the fate of this world
I wish that I could go and just say to this world
It isn’t too late to love

A child cries in Jackson Heights
His daddy ain’t around
She takes him in her arms and then
She takes him to the playground
He runs around the jungle gym
Soon she hears him laughing
She just wants to say to him,
“Baby, you can do anything…be anything.”
