There's Hope Lyrics

Artist: India.Arie
Album: Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship

2,1,2,1,2..(there's hope)
(the india arie)

[1st verse]
back when I had a little
I thought that I needed a lot
a little was overrated
but a lot was a little too complicated
see, zero didn't satisfy me
a million didn't make me happy
that's when I learned the lesson
that it's all about your perception
hey, are you a copper or a superstar
so you act, so you feel, so you are
it ain't about the size of your car
it's about the size of the faith in your heart

[Chorus]
(there's hope)
it doesn't cost a thing to smile
you don't have to pay to laugh
you better thank God for that...there's hope
[2x]

[2nd verse]
from the back country of Brazil
I met a young brother that made me feel
that I could accomplish anything
you see just like me he wanted to sing
he had no windows and no doors
he lived a simple life and was extremely poor
on top of all of that he had no eye-sight
but that didn't keep him from seeing the light
he said "what's it like in the U.S.A.?"
and all I did was complain
he said "living in his paradise" he taught me
paradise is in your heart you know that...

[Chorus]
(there's hope)
it doesn't cost a thing to smile
you don't have to pay to laugh
you better thank God for that...there's hope
[2x]

[Bridge 1]
everytime I turn on the tv (there's hope)
somebody is acting crazy (there's hope)
you bet that it'll drive you crazy (there's hope)
they are taking back my power today (there's hope)
gass prices they just keep on rising (there's hope)
the government they keep on lying
we gotta keep on surviving
keep it in our truth and do the best we can do
'cause there's hope

[Chorus]
(there's hope)
it doesn't cost a thing to smile
you don't have to pay to laugh
you better thank God for that...there's hope
[2x]

Bridge 2
stand up for your right (stand up for your right)
keep shining your light (keep shining your light)
show the world your smile (show the world your smile)
[2x]

Chorus
(there's hope)
it doesn't cost a thing to smile
you don't have to pay to laugh
you better thank God for that...there's hope
[2x]

2,1,2,1,2... (fade)
