Hang in there…

You say you see no hope,
You say you see no reason we should dream
That the world would ever change,
You’re saying Love is foolish to believe.
‘Cause there will always be some crazy
With an army or a knife
To wake you from your daydream,
Put the fear back in your life.

Look, if someone wrote a play
Just to glorify what’s stronger than hate
Would they not arrange the stage
To look as if the hero came too late?
He’s almost in defeat,
It’s looking like the evil side will win,
So on the edge of every seat
From the moment that the whole thing begins.

It is Love who mixed the mortar,
And it’s Love who stacked these stones,
And it’s Love who made the stage here,
Though it looks like we’re alone.
In this scene set in shadows
Like the night is here to stay,
There is evil cast around us
But it’s Love that wrote the play.
And in this darkness Love can show the way.

So now the stage is set,
You feel your own heart beating in your chest.
This life’s not over yet,
So you get up on your feet and do your best.
You play against the fear,
Play against the reasons not to try,
Playing for the tears
Burning in the happy angels eyes.

For it’s Love who mixed the mortar,
And it’s Love who stacked these stones.
And it’s Love who made the stage here,
Though it looks like we’re alone.
In this scene set in shadows,
Like the night is here to stay,
There is evil cast around us
But it’s Love that wrote the play.
For in this darkness Love will show the way.
