I've walked so many miles because with the steps forward I've taken others back 

 
I believe we all do, the majority of us have obstacles across our path; 
 
But we keep moving, is it instinct, Is it will, the dreams of the shining dreams light 
 
But what is that we really want in that dream to come in our life 
 
 
To hold the world in our hands, to be loved and cherished by all 
 
To speak words of peace, and show people that we can keep going after we fall; 
 
That you and I are alike in so many ways 
 
I don't just mean one person I mean my neighbors of every color, race, and Creed 
 
 
Cause we all get stuck in some sort of hole, and claw to dig out 
 
Within that hole it's beautiful to know someone's hand is there, someone I've never met but care about; 
 
My heart has love for my fellow man and women, the animals and earth 
 
Something to preserve as it was given to us at birth 
 
 
So Id wrap my hand around yours cause solidarity is what we need when times are tough 
 
Within our own selves we go through problems, but knowing we can stand together no problem should ever be to much
