Show Me A Sign
by Michael Franti



I hold my camera so far away
So I can take a picture of the world today
See all the people on the streets today
So much struggle, so much cryin', so much stress today
It's just so hard to make it on your own, but
You don't have to walk this world alone no more
I wanna know, I wanna know, when you're comin' home
Send me a picture on your telephone, and say

Ay, we got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
Show me a sign today
We got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
Show me a sign today
It's a crazy world (ay-ay-ay-ay)
You got to show me a sign today
It's a crazy world (ay-ay-ay-ay)

Show me a sign that the world could be better than
People on the streets sleepin' under newspapers
All filled with celebrity news
While bankruptcies got us singin' the blues (y'all)
I just want to know
Why it seems everywhere I go that
Nobody knows how it ends. It started
Standin' in the lines of the brokenhearted
It's just so hard to make it on your own, but
You don't have to walk this world alone no more
I wanna know, I wanna know, when you're comin' home
Send me a picture on your telephone, and say

Ay, we got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
Show me a sign today
We got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
'Cuz I could never make it without you (It's a crazy world)
I could never make it without you (It's a crazy world)

Show me a sign that the world will be fine, and
All dictators kicked out, always earnin'
People everywhere takin' it to the streets
Throw your hands in the air if you know what I mean
Wall Street criminals, some of them politicals,
Stealin' money off of people in the struggle, yo
Everywhere on this planet I see
People fightin' back for humanity

I hold my camera so far away
So I can take a picture of the world today
I wanna know, I wanna know, when you're comin' home
Send me a picture on your telephone, and say

Ay, we got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
Show me a sign today
We got a long, long road today,
No way, I could never ever make it alone
On my own such a long way to go,
So walk next to me,
Show me a sign today

It's a crazy world (ay-ay-ay-ay)
You got to show me a sign today
It's a crazy world (ay-ay-ay-ay)
'Cuz I could never make it without you (It's a crazy world)
I could never make it without you (It's a crazy world)
I could never make it without you (It's a crazy world)
You got to show me a sign,
Show me a sign, show me a sign (It's a crazy world)
Show me a sign today
