”I wanted to address some real issues while encompassing anticipation. When I wrote this song, I was encouraging/reminding myself that, in the midst of all the pain and suffering, there is and always will be hope.” (Emily Brimlow)

G D A Bm
Oh Oh Oh Oh

Long live the people on the streets
A Bm
Hustling all day to go home and feed their families
Just trying to make ends meet
They’re grinding but they’re finding that they still facing defeat
Long live the people that don’t feel equal
Working hard to pay their wages, others playing in casinos
Long live the ones on the run
I hope they find the love they looking for and purpose they’ve been running from

Em Bm
Lord, would you open our eyes to the ones that been despised
To the people crying out, they don’t have a hand to hold at night

Tell em that there’s hope in every situation
A Bm
All this pain I’m facing, for every dream I’m chasing
There is hope Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
There is hope in every situation, all this pain I’m facing
For every generation
There is hope Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

So I lift my hands to the God that guides me
To the one that finds me, even in my darkest days he walks beside me
Singing songs of freedom, oh he’s singing songs of life
And they're leading me out of the darkness and they’re bringing me into the light
Hey, he never said it would be easy, no, he never said we would be safe
He never said the path were walking on, no it wouldn’t have hurdles to face
But the Lord did promise me freedom, and the Lord did promise me strength
He said we’d soar on wings of eagles and not grow weary or faint
