Lyrics:

Having closed my eyes

I have grown to believe

That the darkness is all around me




False images I see

Of a world full of evil

I imagine it all within me




Prepare yourself

Reset yourself

Open your eyes

Your people need you




No longer willing

No longer waiting

No longer building walls of hate




Bring your voice out

Reach out and heal

Heal the world now

You know you can feel




Feel your heart

Look deep down inside

And see injustice

And know what is right


Shine a light

Just don't be afraid

Stand strong

There'll be better days


Where you stand

Is in your hands

Where you love

Is where you can




Having opened my eyes

I have learned to see

There is beauty all around me




When I know I'm not alone

New images I see

Of hope, of strength within me No longer willing

No longer waiting

No longer building walls of hate




Bring your voice out

Reach out and heal

Heal the world now

You know you can feel




Feel your heart

Look deep down inside

See injustice

And know what is right


Shine a light

Just don't be afraid

Stand strong

There'll be better days




Where you stand

Is in your hands


Where you love

Is where you can


Having opened my eyes

I have learned to see

There is beauty all around me




When I know I'm not alone

New images I see

Of hope, of strength within me No longer willing

No longer waiting

No longer building walls of hate




Bring your voice out

Reach out and heal

Heal the world now

You know you can feel

Feel your heart

Look deep down inside

See injustice

And know what is right


Shine a light

Just don't be afraid

Stand strong

There'll be better days


Where you stand

Is in your hands

Where you love

Is where you can


Open your eyes

Don't be afraid

Stand strong

There'll be better days




There'll be better days......better days....better days
