Man, I know we had a lot of tragedies lately
I just wanna say rest in peace to Aaliyah
Rest in peace to Left Eye, rest in peace to Jam Master Jay
And everybody lost in the Twin Towers
And everybody lost period all we got is hope

I wish the way I was living could stop, serving rocks
Knowing the cops is hot when Im on the block, and I
Wish my brother woulda made bail
So I wont have to travel 6 hours to see him in jail, and I

Wish that my grandmother wasnt sick
Or that we would just come up on some stacks and hit a lick, and I
Wish my homies wouldnt have to suffer
When the streets get the upper hand on us and we lose a brother, and I

Wish I could go deep in the zone
And lift the spirits of the world with the words within this song, and I
Wish I could teach a soul to fly
Take the weight of pain out your hands and help you hold them high, and I

Wish God never gave the men power
To be able to hurt the people inside the Twin Towers, and I
Wish God woulda turned they hearts righteous
When they started to take innocent lives and become snipers, but uh

We will never break, though they devastate
We shall motivate and we gotta pray, all we got is faith
Instead of thinking about who gonna die today
The Lord is gonna help you feel better so you aint gotta cry today

Sit at the light so long and then we gotta move
Straight forward 'cause we fight so strong
So when right go wrong, just say a little prayer
Get your money man, life go on, lets hope

'Cause Im hopeful, yes, I am, hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and hell make a way
And I know it aint easy but thats okay, lets be hopeful

I wish that you could show some love
Instead of hatin' so much when you see some other people comin' up
I wish I could teach the world to sing
Write some music and have em trippin' off the joy I bring, shiet

I wish that we can hold hands
Listen instead of dissin' lessons from a grown man, and I
Wish the families that lack, but got love, get some stacks
Brand new shack and a lac thats on dubs, and I

Wish we could keep achieving wonders, see the vision
Of the world through the eyes of Stevie Wonder, you feel me?
And I hope all the kids eat
And dont nobody in my family see six feet, you dig?

I hope them mothers stand strong
You can make it whether you with him or your man's gone, and I
Wish I could give every celly some convissary
And the po po bring the heat on them priest like they did, R. Kelly, and I

Wish that DOC could scream again
And bullets could reverse so Pac and Biggie breath again, shiet
Then one day they could speak again
I wish that we only saw good news every time we look at CNN

I wish that enemies could talk
And that super homie Christopher Reeves could still walk
I wish that we could walk a path, stay doin' the right thing
Hustle hard so the kids maintain up in the game, lets hope

'Cause Im hopeful, yes, I am, hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and hell make a way
And I know it aint easy but thats okay, lets be hopeful

Wish the earth wasnt so apocalyptic
I try to spread my message to the world the best way I can give it
We can make it, always so optimistic
If you dont listen, gotta live my life the best way that I can live it

I pray for justice when we go to court
Wish it was all good so the country wouldnt have to go to war
Why cant we kick it and just get 'em on
And in the famous words of Mr. King, Why cant we all just get along?

Hope we can find a better way to shop and please, and I
Hope we find a better way to cop a keys, and I
Wish everybody would just stop and freeze
And ask, "Why are we fulfillin' these downfalls and these prophecies?"

You can be wrong if its you doubting
With the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains
And only the Heavenly Father can ease the hurt
Just let it go and keep prayin' on your knees in church and lets hope

'Cause Im hopeful, yes, I am, hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and hell make a way
And I know it aint easy but thats okay

'Cause Im hopeful, yes, I am, hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and hell make a way
And I know it aint easy but thats okay
Lets be hopeful, lets be hopeful, lets be hopeful
