"Give A Man A Home" as written by and Ben Harper....
Have you ever lost your way
Have you ever feared another day
Have you ever misplaced your mind
Watching this world leave you behind
Won't you
Won't you give
Won't you give a man
Give a man a home
Have you ever worn thin
Have you ever never known where to begin
Have you ever lost your belief
Watching your faith turn to grief
Won't you
Won't you give
Won't you give a man
Give a man a home
In a world that is unwhole
You have got to fight just to keep your soul
Some would rather give than receive
Some would rather give up before they believe
Won't you
Won't you give
Won't you give a man
Give a man a home

    General Commentwhen feeling depressed i tend to turn to the therapeutic words of Mr. Ben Harper.

    Although this song is depressing..there is so much to relate to that you feel better knowing someone else has shared this same emotion

    This song has some of the most meaningful lyrics:

    Have you ever lost your way
    have you ever feared another day
    have you ever misplaced your mind
    watching this world leave you behind

    it is about feeling confused and when it seems everyone keeps moving ahead of you you just keep slipping further and further behind. It is about staying upbeat and positive when things are at rock bottom.

    my only problem is the correlation of "Give a man a home", can somebody help me out a little bit?
