(Guitar & harp intro)

There's a runaway

On a cold big city street

Trying her best to stay warm

On a subway grate

She kneels down for the heat

And prays for shelter from the storm

As people hurry by on their way home

Where they dream

Of a world without sadness and pain

They turn their heads

Not a one of them feels ashamed

What's another tear in the rain

There the old man stands

In a station for a western train

Going to where, he don't know

They call him when they can

But it still just ain't the same

He's learning to leave and let go

As people hurry by on their way home

Where they dream

Of a word without sadness and pain

They turn their heads

Not a one of them feels ashamed

What's another tear in the rain

When I was a kid

It all seemed oh so simple and clear

We're supposed to take care of each other

While we're here

But we turn our heads

Not a one of us feels ashamed

What's another tear in the rain

What's another tear in the rain

(Harp solo)

(Guitar stuff)
