(richie havens)

Step out in the night
When you*re lonely
Listening for the sounds
That your ears don*t hear
I know your cross is heavier
With every step
Every step
But I know a man
And he*d walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself
*can tell your momma
She*d only tell ya
That she told you so
The life you*re leading
She won*t believe
The riches of life
We all know

Dawn turns to day
And the dawning
Daytime, nighttime
And we still can*t see
Why must we wait until the morning light
To wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be

Step out in the night
When you*re lonely
Listen for the sounds
That your ears don*t hear
I know your cross is heavier
With every step
Every step
But I know a man
Who*d walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself
*can tell your momma
She*d only tell ya
That she told you so
The life you*re leading
She won*t believe
The riches of life
We all know

*can tell your momma
She*d only tell ya
That she told you so
The life you*re leading
She won*t believe
The riches of life
We all know
