Won't walk past

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song for a homeless shelter with my uncle in mind. If it wasn't for all my family taking care of him he would have been in one. The main theme is to empathize w/others.

Song Description

People want actual attention and love. Homeless or not, no one knows the troubles of the other person. It's best to sympathize & empathize w/them.

Won't walk past
Words & music written by: Leanette Lopez ©1997

Don't wanna dream unless it's real
Don't want to hurt unless I heal
Don't want to feel the pain of this old world
Don't wanna laugh unless I cry
Don't wanna live unless I die
Can't you see the pain through my eyes?

You ought to see the pain through my eyes
You ought to live your life through my life
You ought to walk in my shoes
And when I see you
I won?t walk past you

Don't want a house up on a hill
Don't want a car with sex appeal
All I need is some attention
Don't want silver bronze or gold
I don't want pity it's growing old
All I need is some affection
