Message To World Leaders

Believe

Standing here 

Under a shining sun

With my arms stretched open wide

Head held high

And heart upon my sleeve


I want to believe 


I want to believe 

That everything is going to be alright 

That this day's never gonna end 

That our children will not bend

To false mendings


I want to believe 


Standing here

Under a blue, blue sky 

I'm asking you why

Our trust had to die?

Your lies

Listening to lost voices


I want to believe 


It's gonna be alright 

That this day's 

Gonna end 

This child

Never has to cry 


Listening for the whisper 


I'm standing here

I'm all alone 

No one to phone 

No one's at home 

And I'm wondering


Here I stand

Under the smiling moon 

Looking at the stars 

I'm wondering...


Who you really are 

You've taken things 

Way too far

Yes, I'm wondering


The smile is gone

Your fixings

None!

Your troubles

Burst the bubble


So much rubble


Makes me wonder...


Is it gonna be alright? 

Will this day

Ever end? 

Will this child 

Have to shed more tears?


I'm standing here

Waiting for answers

Before the hope is gone 

The love...

It vanishes


I need to believe 


It's gonna be alright 

That this day

Will end...

That our children

Shelter not: from skelter...


We want to believe 


That you believe


In change
