There's (always a) Hope

Back when I had a little, I thought that I needed a lot

A little was over rated, but a lot was a little too complicated
You see-Zero didn't satisfy me, a million didn't make me happy
That's when I learned a lesson, that it's all about your perception
Hey-are you a pauper or a superstar, so you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain't about the size of your car, it's about the size of the faith in your heart


There's hope. It doesn't cost a thing to smile

You don't have to pay to laugh. You better thank God for that

Off in the back country of Brazil, I met a young brother that made me feel that I could accomplish anything.

You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors, he lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight, but that didn't keep him from seein' the light
He said, what's it like in the USA, and all I did was complain
He said-livin' here is paradise, he taught me paradise is in your mind
You know that.

Every time I turn on the TV, somebody's acting crazy

If you let it, it will drive you crazy, but I'm takin' back my power today
Gas prices they just keep on rising, the government they keep on lying, but we gotta keep on surviving
Keep living our truth and do the best we can do
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stand up for your rights

Keep shining your light
And show the world your smile
