Boston is such a beautiful city,
Especially in the winter.
Don't you love the lights that shine
On the trees near Quincy Market
And the laughter you hear
From the people all around you?
That couple walking down the street
Looks at each other with love in their eyes
And it makes me feel warm and happy inside
Because this place is so wonderful.
The happy couples, and pretty lights,
They make it hard to see
The sad parts of this city.
On a bench right next to me,
I see you shivering,
You look so cold.
Winter must be the hardest time for you.
These Boston streets are your home,
But that wooden bench is not warm,
Home is supposed to be warm.
I wish I could build a house around you
And give you a safe place to sleep.
My heart goes out to you
Because I could never live like that.
I wish I could change the way
You are living in this wonderful world.
I wish I could help you see the beauty in life
But I know that's hard when you are suffering every day.
If wishes really did come true,
I would wish that you weren't so cold.
