Every single heart needs a home
Everybody needs a touch of human kindness
It's no wonder we feel alone
'cause all in all we need each other

Everybody has a day
When it seems that everything is going no where
Looking for a touch from above to find god's love
And in it all you know we need each other
Let's understand that we're in it together

(chorus) 1
Take a ride through the streets of gold
On a train that's going to set us free
Hand in hand we will share the load
We're strong together as a family tree
Just reach out and you know i'll be there
In your time of need
That's the way it's meant to be

If somebody lets you down
Don't you want to turn away and run for cover?
Don't let it steal your joy don't let it destroy
'cause in it all you know we need each other
It's by design that we're in it together

(chorus) 2
Take a ride through the streets of gold
On a train that's going to set us free
Hand in hand we will share the load
We're strong together as a family tree
Just reach out and you know i'll be there
You can count on me
That's the way it's meant to be
We're brothers and sisters
We're in it together
'cause that's the way he meant it to be
