Sometimes I lay under the moon
and thank G-d 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 wanna fight no more.
There’ll be no more wars, and our children will play…
