What Do You Say?

What do you say, to a man with a trobuled soul
A man who’s down on his luck, and it seems life just ain’t worth living anymore
The bell rung a long time, and no one’s in his corner
What do you say, to a woman who’s been violated by someone she trusted
A woman who welcomed him into her home, and let her guard down
The inhibitions went away, a bottle of wine is empty, and she was just robbed of the one thing you can’t give back
What do you say, to the poor who can’t catch a break
Evicition notices are common nature, and just getting by is a way of life
No food on the table, clothes from Good Will, and untreated sickness because the hospital visits are to expensive
What do you say, to the stripper who’s just trying to feed her kids
A normal 9 to 5 won’t pay enough, some nights at the club are worse than others so she’ll do more than strip if you know what I mean
Waiting for the phonecall with her results from the clinic, because some guys don’t want to wear a rubber and she gives in because she’s lost her self worth
What do you say ,when they ask you for advice and you don’t how to put it in words
Like any righteous human being you want the best for everyone
You say what’s in your heart, and hope it can soothe their soul because all is not lost
I say, as long as there’s breathe in your body you have something to live for
Life is a wicked game at times, and it’s fair to think faith decides who the winners and losers are
I say, you decide your faith because free will is a right we all have from birth
What do you say?

Artist's Description

I just know the feeling when someone ask for advice or just words of encouragement. It’s so hard to find the right words to say when the situation has suck a bleak outlook.
