Lyrics

Hope in This World

Copyright 2002
Dan Pelletier

C F Am F
I see a man standing on the corner, his two-year-old is sleeping on his shoulder
C G C G
And I think I think, there is love in this world

I see an accident calls for reckless anger, that is met instead by the grace of perfect strangers
And I think I think, there is peace in this world

Chorus:
G C
So raise your hands and raise your voice
G C
Take a stand and make your choice
F G C D
With my heart on my sleeve and my flag unfurled
F G C
I believe there is hope in this world

I see a young face that’s lost it’s youthful charm, trying to pour liquid sunshine into a hopeless arm
And I know, I know there is pain in this world

I see an old man whose skin is pale and yellow, the concrete of the street is his ceiling and his pillow
And I know, I know there is want in this world

chorus

I see a picture perfect bride in a perfect setting, until a bomb explodes in the middle of a wedding
And I know I know that there is hate in this world

I see the wretched remnants of a long-dead war, in the child who’s lost a leg and the ball he’s searching for
And I know, I know hate runs long in this world

Chorus

In my life I’ve seen a cold war and it’s wall and famines and diseases and unjust rulers fall
And I know I know that there is hope in this world

Cause I see a man standing on the corner, his little girl is sleeping on his shoulder
And I think I think that there is hope in this world
Yes I think, I think that there is hope in this world
