I went away, away from this open heart,
Away from the place I started so long ago.
Out there I found, out in this lovely world,
So many people just like myself.
Just like them, I stopped giving my change,
To all the homeless people out on the street.
But I changed back. I give my change again,
To anyone who asks so long as I have a pocket.
Last night I saved $1.80 on ice-cream at Safeway,
A woman outside then asked me for a dollar eighty.
Was it meant to be, an act of God or robbery?
I myself don't know, so it goes.

And so it goes
