about

Inspired and written for a busker in the streets of Auckland. "Of all the faces, he's the only one smiling"

lyrics

There’s a man singing in the street, he only asks that you move your feet
He don’t care where you come from, he don’t care what you own
He don’t live in no house, he don’t own a car
All he drives in this world is an old guitar
They say he’s living on his bones; he calls it living from the heart
He ain’t got a lot but he’s got Soul
He’s the greatest man I’ve ever known
Train pulls closer but this man ain’t riding
Of all the faces he’s the only one smiling
In his eyes, 9 til 5’s never looked so contrived
How to live without being alive
Take your gold coin and your silver one too
What he really wants is to get through to you
It shouldn’t matter where you came from, it shouldn’t matter what you own
He ain’t got a lot, but he’s got Soul
He’s the greatest man I’ve ever known
Some call it city livin’, he calls it city dying
Life’s too short to spend it all lying
To yourself and everyone else, better to be true
To yourself and everyone else, better to be you
