I hear your questions 
I see your face 
Your life before you 
Is full of grace 
What can I tell you 
To let you know 
Your angel's eyes 
Will watch you grow 

Come listen close 
And I'll try to let you know 
It's all I know 

There is no magic 
There are no secrets 
We all begin this race at the start 
But I have come this far 
With a truth of the heart 

Deep down inside 
I think we're all the same 
Try not to judge someone 
And never shame 
I do believe that people are good 
They just want hope and respect 
And to be understood 

Sometimes it hard sometimes it's strange 
But the truth of the heart is people can change 

Yes there is danger and there are shadows 
And there is fear inside the dark 
It has powered countries and borne religion 
Fear can never rule the heart 

My father's burden 
My mother's rain 
My own desire 
My sister's pain
All souls have traveled along this road 
Each one has carried their own heavy load
