Jesus on the Corner


Walking in the hot sun
The toughest man I know
Except I don’t know his name

Lost and empty on the inside
He never got to say goodbye
He expected he’d come home

Jesus on the corner
I spoke to him today
It’s not time just yet
For Gabriel to play

He doesn’t notice us anymore
We’re only birds flying away
We took the last crumb again

He lives in the wrong time
This world is so afraid of him
He tries not to think about it

Jesus on the corner
I heard him say
You noticed me
I said yeah

He can’t relive the past
He knows how it ends
He didn’t have to tell me

The sun is already hot
Spring left him behind
In the shade we talked

Jesus on the corner
I didn’t think to pray
He said thank you
Then he walked away
