Where does that inner strength come from, to travel the extraordinary journey that Barack Obama has made in his life? The kind of strength and HOPE and healing that Barak embodies is a true inspiration. I wrote this song a few years ago, and it speaks to that human spirit and struggle that we sometimes face in very dark hours. FOUR MORE YEARS!

On a tightrope, looking down
You've lost touch with solid ground
You have to reach so deep inside,
To find the place where hope resides.
Hold on, hold on.
There's a hand there. You will find it.
And even though you feel you're drifting through darkness...
Over yonder, there's a light there.
My new friend felt so alone.
His wife and child too far from home.
At first I called them 'refugees'
Until he told their names to me.
I heard stories from the war.
And peeked behind the broken doors.
We helped repair some battered frames,
our hearts will never be the same.
