i wonder how clear it must look from there to here
no obstruction, this selfish corruption
all in this atmosphere
no fear, less tears, only time to catch my breath
i fail to inhale
your love constricts my chest
confusion blinded me, mental and physically
and it's because of you that now i can see
so now i can run. i follow the son and ride on to zion
and dance this last song of freedom
but only time will tell, if it's truly for real
can't change your mind, all i know this is what i feel
whether i'm wrong or right, please keep my life in sight
and never take your eyes off me

as i look up to the sky today
well i can see you looking down on me
it brings a smile to my face again

it's truly one of a kind, like star shine, beyond night time, are you there
my eyes stare to find, just what's behind this blind notion of mine, is it
genuine
cause sometimes, it plays tricks with my mind, some call it asinine
but it's like love or hate, now is that real or fake?
cause it's a real thin line, but that's your choice to make
the question at hand, help me understand, is this your plan?
i think i can, can i think, then i think i can
because i won't break (nah), and i won't shake (nah)
with lifted hands to this man (jah), i'll stand in faith
i'll make it through, my trust in you
close my eyes, make a wish, kiss the sky
hey thereā€¦i see you

are you there?

will you

see you sittin' next to the window in the bedroom
she breaks down--breaks down
crying over something and starin' into nothin'
afraid now - hate now
wanting, needing, haunting, it's killing me
faking what has happened to live the life like that man
i'll break down - it's fake now

will you, will you love me tomorrow?
so will you, will you stay with me today?

fade in out of reason to fight the way she's feelin'
she breaks down--breaks down
goin' through the motions and holding onda(onto) hopes
and her dreams now - somehow
shaken, mistaken, forsaken, it's killing me
wishing you can change, but he's always been this way
if you leave now - i'll drown

will you, will you love me tomorrow?
so will you, will you stay with me today?
will you, will you be here tomorrow?
so will you, you remember yesterday?

yesterday! yesterday! yesterday! yesterday!

this time, i'm sorry
this time, i'm sorry
this time, this time, i'm sorry for this time
this time, this time, i'm sorry
this time i'm sorry!

will you, will you love me tomorrow?
so will you, will you stay with me today?
will you, will you be here tomorrow?
so will you, you remember yesterday?
yesterday yesterday yesterday

will you
so will you

youth of the nation

last day of the rest of my life
i wish i would have known cause i'd have kissed my momma goobye
i didn't tell her that i loved her or how much cared or thank my
pops for all the talks and all the wisdom he shared
unaware i just did what i always do
everyday the same routine before i skate off to school
but who knew that this day wasnt like the rest
instead of takin the test i took two to the chest

call me blind but i didn't see it comin and
everybody was runnin but i couldn't
hear nothin, except gun blast, it happened so fast
i didn't really know this kid though i sat by him in class
maybe this kid was reachin out for love or
maybe for a moment he forgot who he was or
maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged
whatever it was i know its because

we are, we are(we are) the youth of the nation

little suzzie she was only twelve
she was given the world with every chance to excel
hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell
she might act kinda proud but no respect for herself

she finds love in all the wrong places
the same situations but just different faces
changed up her pace since her daddy left her
too bad he never told her she deserved much better

johnny boy always played the fool
he broke all the rules so you would think he was cool
he was never really one of the guys
no matter how hard he tried
often thought of suicide
it's kinda hard when you ain't got no friends
he put his life to an end they might remember him then
you cross a line and there is no turnin back
he told the world how he felt with the sound of a gat

who's to blame for the life that tragedies claim?
no matter what you say it won't take away the pain
that i feel inside, i'm tired of all the lies
don't nobody know why
it's the blind leadin' the blind
guess that's the way that the story goes
will it ever make sense somebody's gotta know
there's gotta be more to life than this
there's got to be more to everything
i thought exists

we are, we are the youth of the nation
we are, we are, we are the youth of the nation
we are the youth of the nation
the youth of the nation

alive


everyday is a new day
i'm thankful for every
breath i take,
i won't take you for granted (i won't take you for granted)
so i learn from my mistakes
it's beyond my control
sometimes it's best to let go
whatever happens
in this lifetime
so i trust in love (so i trust in love)
you have given me
peace of mind

i, i feel so alive
for the very first time
i can't deny you
i feel so alive
i, i feel so alive (so alive)
for the very first time (for the very first time)
and i think i can fly

sunshine upon my face (sunshine upon my face)
a new song for me to sing
tell the world
how i feel inside (tell the world how i feel inside)
even though it might
cost me everything
now that i know this
so beyond, i can't control this
i can never
turn my back away
now that i've seen you (now that i've seen you
i can never look away

and now that i know you
(i could neva turn my back away)
and now that i see you
(i could neva look away)
and now that i know you
(i could neva turn my back away)
and now that i see you
(i believe no matta what they say!)

and i think i can fly (fly)
