Anything Helps  
`A song - the only thing I've written recently. Now that school is finally over for the summer, I hope to be able to write more. I've got to get back to my true love :)




Got out of bed
Put my feet on the floor
Read the comics in the paper
Just like every other day
Grabbed my shoes
And brushed my feet
No time to get a bite to eat
Just like every other day

And then I saw her outside my door
A little beaten, a little worn
Her face was dirty, her clothes were torn
She looked up at me..

(chorus)
She said Please,
Anything helps
Her eyes were red
Like she'd been crying
She said her thirteen
Kids were dying
She said Please,
Anything helps
But I shook my head
Surely she was lying
Got in my car
And started driving
Away (away..)

On my way home
It's five PM
Fighting all the traffic
Just like every other day
The gauge is on E
I fill up the gas tank
Complain about the price
Just like every other day

And then I saw him across the street
With empty beer cans around his feet
Half-glazed eyes and yellow teeth
He looked up at me..

(chorus)
He said Please,
Anything helps
Couldn't find a job
Said he'd been trying
He had no food
Said he was dying
And he said Please,
Anything helps
But I shook my head
Surely he was lying
Stayed in my car
And kept on driving
Away (away..)

(bridge)
Get to my house
All my thoughts are on me
And everything I think I need
Just like every other day
I've forgot the woman
Forgot the man
Forgot I could be just like them
Just like every other day

And then I saw it, right next to me
A broken body hung on a tree
My precious Savior, dying for me
He looked up at me

(chorus)
And said Please,
Why didn't you help?
You ignored my children
They were crying
Stayed in your car
They're still dying
Please,
Why couldn't you help?
Why do you care
If they were lying
Why does it matter
If they weren't trying
How can you send them away?
(away..)

Please,
Why didn't you help?
Look at my children
They're still crying
Get my babies
They're still dying
Please,
Why couldn't you help?
Why do you care
If they are lying?
Why does it matter
If they're not trying?
How can you send them away?
(away...)

(softly)
Don't just send them away... (X2)
