[Chorus: kids singing] Children hold on, to your dreams Believe in love, let love be the light to show the wayyyyy And love will shine on you one day [Trick - speaking over kids] Hold on, to your dreams at least And believe in love It'll show you the way, it'll show you the way That's right, uh-huh [Trick Daddy] God bless the souls of those that impose a threat Better yet, let's forget 'bout this foolishness And though I never asked for forgiveness If you want to pray to him, here's some things I might say to him Lord thank you for my wife, my father and mom And God thank you for my daughter and son You know the devil he's been doin us wrong And I love both of my kids, but they momma can't raise 'em alone And yo, I just want a better understandin There's got to be another way to handle it And well we got to be mature about it We both made our mistakes, and can't no one get us out it My little girl's a little lady And though she often act crazy, she still my baby And I anticipate the day that I can see the smile on her face when she speak to Little J [Chorus] [Trick - speaking over kids] Hold on, to your dreams, you gotta believe Believe in love - that's right Believe in love and the Lord It'll show you the way okay, it'll show you the way, just lead Shine your heart on it (America has a problem) [Trick Daddy] You see the problem with the world is That there's way too many faces and way too many races They done even managed to modernize slavery They clonin little babies, these people goin crazy And white America's on high alert Black America's still starvin and livin in public housin You still eatin off your food stamps That's why one out of every three black boys end up in boot camp And not to mention the ones we'll be missin Let's face it, e'rybody can't make it And e'rybody want to escape it (no way) But if it's thug life we live, then thug life it is But just remember, somethin gotta give That's why, so many and die and, so little live I can't explain it, but that's how it is And God forbid, but it is what it is [Chorus] [Trick - speaking over kids] Hold on, to your dreams, and believe in 'em Feel the strength, I know He'll show you the way, he'll show you the way He'll show you the way [Trick Daddy] The Lord have mercy on 'em For they young and dumb, and that's why I come to pray for 'em Though some of us are better than most of us You can't involve the kids with our differences And since memories are all we have Don't you agree that all little kids deserve to laugh? I'm, teachin the facts about our black leaders Cause they be strong people, just keep readin, it gets deeper We're all God's people So regardless of color and race, we all is covered in grace And you gotta be stronger than most Therefore, we only supposed to go when we chosen Cause God for the thugs too Just be sincere at heart and dawg, God'll still love you So to all my fallen soldiers, the struggle's over All in the name of Jehovah [Chorus] [Trick - speaking over kids] Hold on, to your dreams, c'mon, why'know Believe in love, and love be the light I know, you know, that's right - he'll show you the way I know, it'll shine on you, c'mon And just pray with me, sing with me, c'mon Sing with me, c'mon Believe in love - he'll show you the way I know you will - he'll show you the way, okay?
