lyrics

I watch it on a screen
I see it unfolding
and all at once I feel the way it changes me
The sadness and the fear, these unwanted guests are here
there’s nothing I can do to make them disappear

But he said,
“You can take my wife. You can take away the life we had
But I don’t grant you the gift of my hatred.”

We can share our sorrow
We can share our pain
Everything’s just borrowed
and what we give will be returned again
So be strong
and think about tomorrow

He said,
“You can take my wife. You can take away the life we had
But I don’t grant you the gift of my hatred
You can take this joy from me and my boy
You can take everything
But we won’t grant you the gift of our hatred
No, we won’t.”

When faced with trying times
a few of us will find
a strength inside
to put the cycle to an end
A light at the tunnel’s end
