Key Lines: Sometimes I lay/Under the moon/And thank God I’m breathing/Then I pray/Don’t take me soon/’Cause I am here for a reason/Sometimes in my tears I drown/But I never let it get me down/So when negativity surrounds/I know some day it’ll all turn around/Because all my life I’ve been waiting for/I’ve been praying for/For the people to say/That we don’t want to fight no more/They’ll be no more wars/And our children will play/One day
