Little sarah jane ran away from home
Fourteen and pregnent she was all alone
Couldn't run from wrong, and was gonna be sent away
Walkin' with her black and blue eyes full tears
The burden that she carries much to old for her years
Looking at her face would confirm your worst fears
But instead she goes unnoticed
Sarah Jane another girl who is dying inside
You'd think that someone would stop
But we hide, to intent on completing our day
And she's left there to say
Chorus:
Do you hear me?
Can you see me?
Walking down the street watching you
You could help me
But your not looking
I bet you would if only you knew
You could make a difference
Do you hear me?
Can you see me?
Walking down the street needing you
I want to make it
How can I get there?
If you showed me that you cared, you know
You could make the difference
He's left to watch the world from the fifteenth floor
Alone with the reminder, don't go out anymore
You know those boys are trouble here in our neighborhood
BUt you're my boy and you've got the chance to be something good
Still the call of the streets was too much to ignore
Now he's caught up in the game and can't find an open door
He's a good boy gone bad and he's trying to get out
But everybody's too afraid to hear what he's talking about
Marcus Brown, lives a life much too old for his age
If no one responds, he'll be words on a page
Another statistic cause no calls were made
To check on the boy who was missing from the fifth grade
Chorus
Bridge
Everywhere you turn there's hurting people passing by
Its such a shame that we could change a life but we don't try
To look outside out world
