Lyrics:

Empty Eyes and Sad, Cold Faces
You walk on by and don't even say it
I care 'bout you, care 'bout you.

It's on the news, it's all over TV
They tell you the truth, they have no-where to sleep
It's true, it's true.

And you say "That's life these days"
"I can't spare no change"
"get outta my way"
And you say "Close the door, close the door Honey.
It's cold, it's cold"

A baby sleeps in a parked car down the street
Her momma cries she ain't got nothin' for to eat
No food, no food.

And a man stands strong at his job he tells them lies
Says he got a house on the city on the west side.
No roof, no roof.

And you say "that's life these days"
"I can't spare no change"
"get outta my way"
And you say "close the door, close the door honey"

But one nickle will do
It'll help buy me a cup of coffee
And I Know you hate the truth
But I can't lie to you!

And you say "That's life these days"
"I can't spare no change"
"get outta my way"
And you say close the door, close the door honey.."
X2
"It's cold, It's cold"
"It's cold, It's cold".
