Is this what we've been waiting for?
They’re promise of life getting better?
A day when all the pain would suddenly fade away
As if that nagging ache could be ignored
Just another lie to hold ourselves together
Like how wounds heal with each passing day—
Like how wounds heal with each passing day— ...Yeah, right.
Like how wounds heal with each passing day— ...Yeah, right. Rather, with time, they merely become sores we learn to tolerate
We may look beaten, broken and bruised
But only in their eyes
If only they could see what lay inside
Now's the time we see how all the painful pieces fit
As we feel all the hurt in the world today
We know we can handle it
While others are lost or led astray
Now’s our turn to pull them out from the fray
They're the ones that need us here
To stand tall and walk without fear
The reason why we’ve carried so much grief
Time to show the world the heart we’ve hid beneath.
