Sometimes I lay under the moon and thank God I’m breathing
Then I pray, don’t take me soon, ‘cause I am here for a reason


Sometimes in my tears I drown, but I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know some day it’ll all turn around because…

All my life I’ve been waiting for, I’ve been praying for,
for the people to say
That we don’t wanna fight no more, there’ll be no more war
And our children will play

One day (x6)


It’s not about win or lose, ‘Cause we all lose when they feed on
the souls of the innocent, blood-drenched pavement
Keep on moving though the waters stay raging

In this maze you can lose your way
It might drive you crazy but don’t let it faze you, no way
No way!

(Chorus – Sometimes in my tears…)


One day this all will change, treat people the same
Stop with the violence, down with the hate
One day we’ll all be free, and proud to be
Under the same sun, singing songs of freedom like
One day-

(Chorus – All my life…)
