close

 
greatwhite



Grew up on promises
Tomorrow will be all right
Held on to my defenses
In fear of the night
Covered my worried head
As she turned out the light
And just as tomorrow comes
Again comes the night

The only comfort I received
All you can do is let it be
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right
Took on an education
I learned to compete

It don't take no qualification
To sleep in the street
There's not much humanity
In this kind of race
How civil is competition
A foot on a face?

And at the time I still believed
A little more juice, I'll be free
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right

Now as I take your hand
Show you the stars
Try to explain to you
Who we are

With so little expectation
In this manner of life
All of the complications
The fear in the night
Will you be able to believe
There will be love eventually

It's gonna be all right, uh-huh?
We'll make it through the night
It's gonna be all right
