A thousand passersby just walk on
His luxuries of life have been taken away
I wish someone would stop me
Every time that I complain

Be grateful in every way
Taken Away
Don’t you forget
He would give anything
Taken Away
For a working body

Don’t throw your blesses away

I’ve been given love, given family
A warm clean bed for my head to lay
So many people aren’t so lucky
Don’t forget to give thanks and praise

Be grateful in every way
Taken Away
He would give anything
For a working body
Taken Away
A split second later

Don’t throw your blesses away

Truly grateful for each and every day
I get on my knees to give thanks and praise
Go

Budapest, Hungary 1991
I met a boy names Janos
Confined to a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis
His own mobility based
Solely on the movements of his chin
But he had so much to teach me
When I showed him some friendship
When I stopped to talk

He said it really hurts
When people look right past you
Like I’m not a human being with feelings
Love and compassion sitting here
Don’t you dare feel sorry for me
Just give me a chance
His reality’s cool
His mind stays strong
Hey I’m alive

A thousand passersby just walk on
His luxuries of life have been taken away
I wish someone would stop me
Every time that I complain

Taken Away
Don’t you forget
Taken Away
He would give anything
Taken Away
For a working body
Taken Away
Don’t throw your blesses away
Taken Away
