As I'm walking through these streets again
I'm crawling
And as I try to live my life again
I'm falling down

Can you pick me up
Can you let it stop
Can you make it go away

Can you pick me up
Can you let it stop
Can you make it go away

Won't somebody help me, is it hard
To let me find my way
Won't somebody love me (for a start)
I'm laughing as I pray

Where is the road
I must look at the road
I must pray a little longer
Or laugh a little more

    General Commentit's such a short song, but it's wonderfull! she is trying so hard to be strong and make something off the mess she has been given, but she fails all the time. So that's why I think "laughing" is sarcastic, or at least a laugh as in: 'well, it couldn't get any worse' You know what I mean?

    General Commentthis song--to me anyways--is about a person who feels so completely hopeless that as they pray they laugh as in thinking...it's even ridiculous for God to want to help them. The line "won't somebody love ME for a start...I'm laughing as I pray" always makes me cry because to that person that request is so absurd that even they start laughing at themselves....

    General Commentisn't the last line 'pray a little longer, laugh a little more" not "pray a little longer OR laugh a little more?" It makes more sense without the or. Either way, its a great song. good live, too.
