  • People waiting for some kind of sign from above
    Lost in the shadows of doubt, need a message of love
    Nothing is certain in uncertain times
    Hard to see beyond the greed and the crime

    Oh, the faithful refuse to give up
    Homeless and hungry survive just enough
    Learn to smile through it all
    They are blessed from above

    Never stop believin', change will come
    There's a city of hope beyond our fears
    Where miracles happen, where truth can be heard
    Don't you wanna go to the city of hope
    Founded on faith, connecting us all
    A network of love to answer the call
    Yeah, that's where I am from
    The city of hope

    On the edge of the world, across oceans of blue
    It's a place where a dream has a chance to come true
    Don't be fooled by illusions or falling from grace
    Make your own destiny, find your own place
    Where the streets beat the lessons of trouble open play

    Never stop believin', change will come
    There's a city of hope beyond our fears
    Where miracles happen, where truth can be heard
    Don't you wanna go to the city of hope
    Founded on faith, connecting us all
    A network of love to answer the call
    Yeah, that's where I am from
    The city of hope

    I hear them whisper, "send in a prayer,"
    A cry to the spirit where they no longer wonder

    Never stop believin', change will come
    There's a city of hope beyond our fears
    Where miracles happen, where truth can be heard
    Don't you wanna go to the city of hope

    Yeah that's where I am from
