  • A thousand passersby just walk on
    His luxuries of life have been taken away
    I wish someone would stop me
    Every time that I complain

    Be grateful in every way
    Taken Away
    Don抰 you forget
    He would give anything
    Taken Away
    For a working body

    Don抰 throw your blesses away

    I抳e been given love, given family
    A warm clean bed for my head to lay
    So many people aren抰 so lucky
    Don抰 forget to give thanks and praise

    Be grateful in every way
    Taken Away
    He would give anything
    For a working body
    Taken Away
    A split second later

    Don抰 throw your blesses away

    Truly grateful for each and every day
    I get on my knees to give thanks and praise
    Go

    Budapest, Hungary 1991
    I met a boy names Janos
    Confined to a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis
    His own mobility based
    Solely on the movements of his chin
    But he had so much to teach me
    When I showed him some friendship
    When I stopped to talk

    He said it really hurts
    When people look right past you
    Like I抦 not a human being with feelings
    Love and compassion sitting here
    Don抰 you dare feel sorry for me
    Just give me a chance
    His reality抯 cool
    His mind stays strong
    Hey I抦 alive

    A thousand passersby just walk on
    His luxuries of life have been taken away
    I wish someone would stop me
    Every time that I complain

    Taken Away
    Don抰 you forget
    Taken Away
    He would give anything
    Taken Away
    For a working body
    Taken Away
    Don抰 throw your blesses away
    Taken Away
