Lyrics - There Can Be Miracles (If You Believe) for my hurting DU friends
Edited on Wed Jun-07-06 03:44 AM by themartyred
Since the day Kerry conceded I have never seen so many hurting people on this site as I have this past week. Those of you who've either posted a down and out or feeling helpless comment, which I've seen many many many of lately, or who have read them like me -
please know I hurt with each and every one of you as do a lot of us here on DU with differing views, but one common collective thought - and that's equality and happiness for ALL!

We've been battered emotionally by the Bush Administration, from watching hours of warfare stories of dead soldiers and Iraqi citizens or having it effect our families directly, to tens of thousands suffering in New Orleans area while Bush ate cake and strummed a guitar on vacation, and now watching him seek a very negative change to the Constitution, that he has no right in pushing for - it's bigoted, homophobic, and obvious pandering.

FOR ALL OF US WHO ARE HURTING & HOPING - I OFFER THESE LYRICS TO 'THERE CAN BE MIRACLES'


Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hope for a song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains
Long before we knew we could

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail,
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seemes like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here
With a heart so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles when you believe
Though hope is frail,
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe...

You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
Now you will
You will when you believe


BLESS YOU DU'ers - VICTORY IN 06!

1. Thanks, that was inspiring.
It reminds me how its always that undefinable something that keeps you going, but that little something is exactly how you win in the end. Great words.

2. exactly!
nice comment! that's very succinct and powerful - "that undefinable something that keeps you going".

Glad to lift you up with the lyrics.

I'll consider joining the ACLU, also, will look into it later this month sometime.
