Amber Lawrence - The Man Across The Street Lyrics

The man across the street saved my life
little wandering girl caught his eye,
in the traffic, out on main street,
I was scooped up in his arms,
I can still remember how my mother cried,
when the man across the street saved my life

The man across the street lived alone,
every shred of family long gone,
broken by the memory, of a forgotten Asian war,
curtains drawn garden over-grown,
the man across the street lived alone

chorus
shadow scattered in the morning
stars shining brighter in the night
I just need to hear you whisper it's alright
it's alright

No-one ever gave the time of day,
parents thought to keep their kids away,
cause it’s easier to be afraid,
than try to understand,
he never waved the white flag of defeat,
but he lost it all, the man across the street

chorus
shadow scattered in the morning
stars shone brighter in the night
I just need to hear you whisper it's alright
it's alright

And lest he be forgotten,
I sing about him in this song,
and there’s a thousand more, l
ike him that paid the price,
the man across the street saved my life

chorus
shadow scattered in the morning
stars shining brighter in the night
i just need to hear you whisper it's alright
it's alright

chorus
shadow scattered in the morning
stars shone brighter in the night
I just need to hear you whisper it's alright
it's alright
