  • How many mountains must you face before you learn to climb?
    I'm gonna give you what it takes, my universal child

    I'm gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm
    I'm gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm
    And I can see you, you're everywhere, your portrait fills the sky
    I'm gonna wrap my arms around you, my universal child

    And when I look into your eyes, so innocent and pure
    I see the shadow of the things that you've had to endure
    I see the tracks of every tear that ran right down your face
    I see the hurt, I see the pain, I see the human race
    And I can feel you, you're everywhere, shining like the sun
    I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone

    How many tumbles must it take before you learn to fly?
    I'm going to help you spread your wings, my universal child

    I'm gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm
    We're gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm

    I can feel you, you're everywhere, shining like the sun
    And I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone
    And I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone Writer/s: ANNIE LENNOX
