Some People Cry

  • (Huw Williams)

    Chorus:
    Some people are hiding from the cold
    But then again what do I know
    My pillow's warm
    And I only see the best of the day

    Some people are flying in the streets
    Some people are sighing in the streets
    Some people are lying in the streets
    And some people cry
    Some people are hiding in the streets
    The young the old shuffling their feet
    Playing the game with the people that they meet
    Some people cry

    Some people with nowhere to run
    No light to follow no one to come
    Just a sad shivering dreaming of the sun
    Some people cry
    Some people with no place to go
    They have no heaven, no arms to hold
    They sell their bodies so there goes their soul
    And some people cry

    Some people are flying in the streets
    Some people are lying in the streets
    Pretty soon they'll be dying in the streets
    And some people cry

    Some people are flying in the streets
    Some people pass by in the streets
    We should be dying of shame in the streets
    And some people cry

    And I
    Never really want to know
    Where do people without a home go

    (as sung by Heather Heywood)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1993:] [A] very simple song but with a very direct message. Hearing this song really did make me think about my attitude to homeless people and the last line really does sum up our attitude to a lot of difficult problems. We'd rather we didn't know. (Notes Heather Heywood, 'By Yon Castle Wa')
