"Instead" is a song by Stacie Orrico

Lyrics

I saw him shaking his change in a coffee cup

Asked for a dollar but I told the man to give it up

Said he´s hungry I don´t think that´s true

I bet my dollar he´d just go spend it on booze

I turned my back on him and began to walk away

But then I heard a little voice inside me say

What if it´s really true what if he´s hungry

What if it´s not for him, does he have a family


How´d you get here

How´d you end up on the street

Where did it go wrong

Wonder what I´d do if it were me


A new point of view

A walk in your shoes

I wish I could get inside your head

To see what you see

When you look at me

Cause I could´ve lived your life instead


It was 90 degrees in the summer heat

She was veiled in bvack all the way down to her feet

This is America doesn´t she know

Somebody take her shopping, buy her some clothes

She came up to me, I didn´t understand a word

I was about to leave then another thought occurred

She might be really lost, scared and frustrated

I should try again to see what she´s saying

How´d you get here

How´d you get so far from home

What was it that made you leave

Wonder what I´d do if it were me


A new point of view

A walk in your shoes

I wish I could get inside your head

To see what you see

When you look at me

Cause I could´ve lived your life instead


I want to see....see what you see

And I want to feel.... feel just what you feel


A new point of view

A walk in your shoes

I wish I could get inside your head

To see what you see

When you look at me

Cause I could´ve lived your life instead
