Normals

Normals - Apron Full Of Stains

rate me

She walks to the table with an apron full of stains and asks, "Hey sir, what can I get for you today?"<br />

Should I be polite and make nice conversation but the foods no good, she doesn't seem to even notice me here. <br />

Her shoulder slump to see her tear stained eyes and back through the double swinging doors serving pies was not her goal in life. <br />

I leave a tip like I think Jesus would and smile, "Thanks alot, have a nice day" and I am on my way.<br />

Jesus what would you do? Can you teach me how to love like you? <br />

<br />

Chorus:<br />

I wanna give you everything, but I have nothing of my own at all. <br />

And if I give what I have not got will you fill me up and make me whole? <br />

<br />

I see him sitting by the side of the building near the street side. <br />

He's got a sign saying I will work for food. He looks up with his glazed over eyes and says, "How about a dollar for a Veteran, a fellow American?"<br />

Empty stomach, empty mind, empty soul. Have I got the time to feed him a little broken bread. <br />

Do I toss up a prayer as I walk on by? Give him a tract and a weak faked smile or do I take the time to show him a little love?<br />

Don't feel like I got anything to give, so I guess I got nothing to lose. <br />

<br />

Chorus:<br />

I wanna give you everything, but I have nothing of my own at all. <br />

And if I give what I have not got will you fill me up and make me whole?<br />

<br />

I come back a couple weeks later and see the same apron, same stains, same split-end hair pulled back.<br />

She comes near and says, "Hey mister your smile picked me up the other day just thought I would say thanks." <br />

And I dont know why it takes all of my effort to try. <br />

<br />

Chorus:<br />

I wanna give you everything, but I have nothing of my own at all. <br />

And if I give what I have not got will you fill me up and make me whole? Make me whole.<br />

<br />

She walks to the table with an apron full of stains and asks, "Hey sir, what can I get for you today?"
