Sometimes crawl, fall, but I stand up cause I'm afraid to sleep And open my eyes to a new day, with all new problems 4. and all new pain All the faces are filled with so much anger Losing our dignity and hope from fear of danger After all the wars, after settling the scores, at the break of dawn we will be deaf to the answers
There's so much bigotry, misunderstanding and fear With eyes squinted and fists clinched we reach out for what is dear We want it we want We want a reason to live
We're on a pilgrimage A crusade for hope 'Cause in our hearts and minds and souls we know We need it we need We need more than this
Going through this life looking for angels People passing by looking for angels
Walking down the streets looking for angels Everyone I meet looking for angels
So many nations with so many hungry people So many homeless scrounging around for dirty needles On the rise, teen suicide, when we will realize We've been desensitized by the lies of the world
We're oppressed and impressed by the greedy Whose hands squeeze the life out of the needy When will we learn that wars, threats, And regrets are the cause and effect of living in fear
Who can help protect the innocence of our children Stolen on the internet with images they can't forget We want it we want We want a reason to live
We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation To let love be our light and salvation We need it we need
We need more than this I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?
What will you do to help someone along the way? Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me In the midst of the most painful faces Angels show up in the strangest of places

The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
