lyrics

In the night there is no peace
She can't sleep for all the shooting and the screams
She hates this neighborhood but she can't leave
She's barely old enough to walk herself across the street
But she does it anyway

In the day when its time to go to school
And all the lights are out in every single room
Cause there's nobody there to wake her up
There's nobody there to make her go
When everybody quits when everyone else gives up
She goes anyway

We say
If you have hope then there is some for everyone
When the whole wide world stacked against us
We can do it anyway

In these days in these times
Its not easy to keep the faith alive
You are not alone you are just burning up so bright
You can't see us all around you
Just keep holding on tight
Cause

If you have hope then there is some for everyone
When the whole wide world stacked against us
We can do it anyway

We have hope....
