We cross at the place that divides us
Cross the river, the river so wide
We can smother the pain that's inside us
Deny the demons that wait by our side
We even find, find the light

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon
We share the comfort of the same stars
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun
That don't matter, can't you see what we are
What we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead
Don't look back, it won't help us now
Storm, we left so far behind
Seems a dark memory, starts to fade
But till we see the light we will not be safe

We all sink or swim in the same ocean
Break our skin and we will bleed
Our minutes pass with the same motion
Face the same danger, we share the same needs
We're all the same, you and me

Keep our sights on the way ahead
Don't look back, that won't help us now
'Cos upstream, the river it gets too wide
So we must build that bridge right here
'Cos if we wait we will not reach the other side

Just see under that clear blue sky
The winds of change are blowing hard and long
And they'll not stop to rest, 'cos the change is gonna come

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon
We share the comfort of the same stars
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun
That don't matter, can't you see what we are
What we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead
Don't look back, it won't help us now
'Cos upstream the river it gets too wide
And if we don't build that bridge right here, right now
You know we'll never ever reach the other side
