  • Walk this world alone try to stay on my feet

    Sometimes crawl, fall, but I stand up cause I'm afraid to sleep
    And open my eyes to a new day, with all new problems 4. and all new pain
    All the faces are filled with so much anger
    Losing our dignity and hope from fear of danger
    After all the wars, after settling the scores, at the break of dawn we will be deaf to the answers

    There's so much bigotry, misunderstanding and fear
    With eyes squinted and fists clinched we reach out for what is dear
    We want it we want
    We want a reason to live

    We're on a pilgrimage
    A crusade for hope
    'Cause in our hearts and minds and souls we know
    We need it we need
    We need more than this

    Going through this life looking for angels
    People passing by looking for angels

    Walking down the streets looking for angels
    Everyone I meet looking for angels

    So many nations with so many hungry people
    So many homeless scrounging around for dirty needles
    On the rise, teen suicide, when we will realize
    We've been desensitized by the lies of the world

    We're oppressed and impressed by the greedy
    Whose hands squeeze the life out of the needy
    When will we learn that wars, threats,
    And regrets are the cause and effect of living in fear

    Who can help protect the innocence of our children
    Stolen on the internet with images they can't forget
    We want it we want
    We want a reason to live

    We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation
    To let love be our light and salvation
    We need it we need

    We need more than this
    I became a savior to some kids I'll never meet
    Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat
    What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?

    What will you do to help someone along the way?
    Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek
    Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
    In the midst of the most painful faces
    Angels show up in the strangest of places Writer/s: JOHN COOPER, JOHN LANDRUM COOPER
