No Home

Music: Shawn Poon
Lyrics: Leonard Sam

No home to return to
No roof and no bed
No place for our children
To lay their sweet heads
The darkness is falling
The rain pouring down
No food and no shelter
No mercy is found

Cry out, cry out, is anyone there
Can you spare us some bread
To ease our despair
Our children are hungry
We’ve travelled so far
Are we to be outcasts
Wherever we are

Alone in the storm
Surrounded by waves
No hope and no future
For the rest of our days
Is there light in the darkness
A place we can rest
Is there any compassion
Is there any love left

Cry out, cry out, is anyone there
Can you spare us some bread
To ease our despair
Our children are hungry
We’ve travelled so far
Are we to be outcasts
Wherever we are

We dream of a place
That we can call our own
A place where there’s peace
Where my friends and I can roam
Still, I won’t stop believing
It’s just wishful thinking
Does cruel fate condemn us
To wander and never find home

Cry out, cry out, is anyone there
Can you spare us some bread
To ease our despair
Tomorrow will come
But we may not be here
Hungry and lost
Our time may be near
