They're crowded into the smallest spaces While outside all of nature cries It's known to be cruel and unfair But there is no place to hide [Chorus] Oh I've seen a part of people that I never Really want to share Oh I've seen a part of people that I never Knew was there Shelter give them shelter from the coming storm Shelter give them shelter from the coming storm I can't sleep I'm haunted by their faces The sadness in their eyes It hurts so much to see them helpless It makes me want to cry But still there is so much left unanswered For so many innocent lives The close the doors and are letting nobody in And only the strong will survive [Chorus] I've seen the anger and I've seen all the dreams And I've watched an existence torn apart at the seams And though I may seem helpless I will do all that I can do Oh I've seen a part of people that I never really Want to share Oh I've seen a part of people that I never knew Was there [Chorus]
