A child looks up into my eyes, nothing to say.
An open hand with scars can hide the pain away.
What I can give is not enough to help him grow.
How can I fulfill his needs, embrace his soul?
The hope deep in his eyes are dreams he must let fly!
So sing this song with me.
This hopeful melody.
Just raise your head up and stand up, no fear in your eyes.
Tell me love and hope never die.
So raise your head up and stand up, no reason to cry.
Cause your heart and soul will survive.
The child struggled to survive. Now he's a man.
With children of his own, he does the best one can.
He tries to live with love and not let sorrow grow,
Even though he barely reaps all that he sows.
