"People" as written by and Jonathan Michael Mclaughlin....
People doing better, people needing more
People writing letters, people get ignored
People saving money and people saving face
People going hungry, people waste away

Needing one reason to live in a world
Where nothing is worthwhile 'til it's gone
You spend your life moving on

Well, people wearing nothing, people wearing out
And people scared of something, and people live in doubt
Now people going places and people running home
And those who know what grace is, people disowned

Needing one reason to live in a world
Where nothing is worthwhile 'til it's gone
You spend your life moving on

Give me one reason to care anymore
'Cause there has got to be a better way
A road that leads to better days

In the back of minds and corners of our eyes
It'll lie the reason we're alive
And I will love you back
I'll love you back

One reason to live in a world
Where nothing is worthwhile 'til it's gone
You spend your life moving on

Give me one reason to care anymore
'Cause there has got to be a better way
A road that leads to better days

    General Commenti can never tell, is it "i will love you BAD" or is it "i will love you BACK?"

    General CommentI think this song is about like... people in general. How some people are one thing while others are opposite, how we don't take things for granted. "People wearing nothing, people wear it all" as in we don't take things for granted.

    General CommentJon Mclaughlin is a christian. Although this song is not necessarily a "worship" song, alot of parts of this song talk have biblical/christian references
    .. 1) he talks about the hope for a better place (heaven).... "cause there has got to be a better way
    a road that leads to better days"
    2) He talks about how this world has nothing to offer... "give me the one reason to live in a world where nothing is worth while"
    3) he talks about people who believe in christianity and believe that jesus (by dying on the cross) offers grace to anyone who accepts it... "and those that know what grace is,
    People disown"

    hope this helps : )
