Lili Haydn Take Somebody Home Lyrics

Last updated:

Written by Lili Haydn & Peter Rafelson

She rides down Fairfax with her Mommy
Canter's on the right, the night is foggy
not foggy enough, she still sees the pain in their eyes
She makes mom explain the reason why
They live on the street, we just drive by
but not fast enough, she still sees the blame in her eyes
Can we please take somebody home
There's room in our house where it's not cold
Why can't we please take somebody home
The little girl cries with love in her eyes

Mom don't make that much in a day
She knows they ain't that far away
from being denied
She barely survives in this land
Can we please take somebody home
There's room in our house where it's not cold
Why can't we please take somebody home
The little girl cries with love in her eyes

Mom tries to explain "supply side"
not much trickles down, justice belie
the eyes of a child see through these civilized lies
Can we please take somebody home
There's room in our house where it's not cold
Why can't we please take somebody home
The little girl cries with love in her eyes
