One hand reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
And they say,
"What good have you done by saving just this one"
"It's like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm"

And I hear them saying,
"You'll never change things.
And no matter what you do
It's still the same thing"
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so, this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage
And so many say
"That love is all but pointless,
in madness such as this."
"It's like trying to stop a fire
with the moisture of a kiss."

And I hear them saying,
"You'll never change things.
And no matter what you do
It's still the same thing"
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so, this world will know
That it will not change me

As long long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

And I hear them saying,
"You'll never change things.
And no matter what you do
It's still the same thing"
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so, this world we know
That it will not change me

What I do is so, this world will know
That it will not change me
