Nice Things

I walk through life

like many others

We focus on the day

as we try to make our way

Hearts set on nice things

Nice places and nice people

*

I talk true life

That we can discover

We know the games to play

And we work to make our way

Hearts set on nice things

Fair faces and lives we keep full

**

Then I look down

And see the hard side of town

I work for my life

But theirs’ can’t be found

*

I walk through the field

But I can’t see the ground

The life that is there

does truly abound

How can we save it

When there’s no help around?

*

I have to look up

Raise my head

Hope I’m stepping fine

Impossible to believe

The human race isn’t kind

**

I walk through life

like many others

We have a focus that must stay

as we try to make things okay

Hearts set on cool things

Quaint places and kind people

*

I talk through life

About what we can discover

We know the things to say

And we work to make our pay

Hearts set on nice things

Happy faces for more people
