Hope flies over New York
believe in the sun even when it is not shining, and I believe in love
even when there's no one there. And I believe in God even when God
is silent, I believe through any trial there is always a way. But
sometimes in this suffering and hopeless despair, my heart cries out
for shelter, to know someone is there. But a voice rises within me
saying hold on My child, I'll give you strength, I'll give you hope,
just stay a little while. May there someday be sunshine, may there
someday be happiness, may there someday be peace.
