I met a guy with some coins in his can,
his face was weathered, dark and sad.
He looked up to me and asked something I'll never forget.
He said, "How can you smile with your lips
wrapped around a loaded gun? How can you smile?
Look at this life, is this all we've got?"

And my reply was quick,
read this book, you were meant to live.
It all means so much to me,
but note what's written in red, it says...
It speaks of hope, trust and love.
The fear of never being good enough.
We were all made the same, I know it's tough.
Please don't give up!

Don't speak that way,
cause I won't allow you.

You're too young to live this way.
Just close your eyes and see the true meaning.
You're too young to live this way,
just look around and see that life is beauty.

How can you smile when this life is all we've got?
There's no hole inside, no time that's long enough,
That can be saved or healed, there's nothing that
can't be covered with love!

Don't speak that way,
cause I won't allow you.

You're too young to live this way.
Just close your eyes and see the true meaning.
You're too young to live this way,
just look around and see that life is beauty.

This world is not, this world is not
my home, I'm just passing through!
There's hope, there's love, I know there is a void.
There's hope and there is love,
But there's no void that can't be covered with love!
