Our Hearts On The Corner

I saw a man weeping on the corner
I asked him what the tears were for
He said he lost all he loved
And cursed the one who was above

He said he had no friends to tell
Of when things didn't go so well
So I listened for a second more
Heart on a sleave is what he wore

'Thank you for your time, ' he said
I told him it was not much to give
'If you hadn't stopped I might be dead,
You gave me that for which to live'
