Do Not Turn Away
Words and music by John Bucchino
©Art Food Music (ASCAP)

Oh the saddest sound I ever heard
Was footsteps cold and sharp
They were speaking volumes of neglect
As they faded in the dark

And the most haunting voice I ever heard
Was crying into space
A wounded angel trapped in flesh
And wearing your child's face
Yes, wearing your child's face

Don't turn away
Don't condemn
Let your spirit comfort them
Peace awaits
But until then
Do not turn away

The longest journey ever gone
Began with one small step
And the price for burning bridges now
Is a lifetime of regret
How we love is no more choice
Than is the way we die
By you who gave them passage here
They must not be denied
They must not be denied

Don't turn away
Don't condemn
Let your spirit comfort them
Peace awaits
But until then
Do not turn away

Don't turn away
Do not fail
Heed your heart
Let love prevail
Death is looming
Hope is frail
Do not turn away
Do not turn away
