Lyrics
Been Awhile ©2012 Greg C. Brown/Roger Sosnowski/Janice Hopkins She was rushed into emergency On a frosty cold Chicago night. A victim of the elements And the harshness of her life. A couple days in a hospital bed, Got her some rest and a little respect . Her story touched each nurse’s heart, They heard the words they’ll never forget: Chorus It’d Been Awhile since she had a good meal Or a soft warm place to sleep. It’d Been Awhile since anybody cared, She was far from home, living on the street. Been a long, long while since she felt their hugs, Been Awhile since she’d been loved. She’d been a fiery-eyed teen-aged girl, Determined to be in control. She left home one Kansas night With no good-bye to her folks. Now they're home with two broken hearts And asking now, did they do their best? Did they hold too tight or not enough, They hope she’ll call ‘cause they can't forget.. Chorus It’s Been Awhile since she’s had a good meal Or a soft, warm place to sleep. It’s Been Awhile since she knew they cared, She’s far from home, probably on the street. Been a long, long while since she’s felt their hugs, Been Awhile…..without her love. Instrumental break Bridge The nurses chipped in to send her back To her small town world and her Mom and Dad. When she walked in weary from the street Their shock soon gave way to tears of relief. As she ran into their arms they said… Chorus It’s Been Awhile since you had a good meal Or a soft, warm place to sleep. It’s Been Awhile since anybody cared, Far from home living on the street. Been a long, long while since we’ve felt your hugs, Been Awhile since you’ve been loved. It’s good to see your smile; yeah, it’s Been Awhile.
