veryone sees
Everyone feels but it's done by degrees…
Shuffle along as she holds out a hand
Walk it on by like there's air where she stands…
What does she get?
She takes it over and over again
Looking in vain for the eyes of a friend
She had 'em once and she could tell you when
Out on the street the side show never ends

When I see you draw your coat in tight
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
When I see you just try to survive
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I

Poignant and sad
Eating his bread he looks just like my dad
It ain't a sin to be too weak to win
It's the underside of American dream…
I'd like to be
One to assuage some of this misery
People say don't give 'em money just think
They only spend it for drugs and for drink
Like they were dogs and not men past the brink…

When I see you draw your coat in tight
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
When I see you just try to survive
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I

Such a fine line is all
Between you and me
Anybody could be
Standing where you are now
It wouldn't take much somehow…

You have your hopes and your dreams and your pride
What makes yours less deserving than mine?
How can we act like it's all fair and fine?

When I see you draw your coat in tight
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
When I see you just try to survive
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
Saying that it's wrong don't make it right
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
Oh it gets so cold in the middle of the night
It's a very thin line 'tween you and I
