How many mountains must you face
Before you learn to climb?
I'm gonna give you what it takes
My universal child

I'm gonna try to find a way
To keep you safe from harm
I'm gonna build a special place
A shelter from the storm

And I can see you, you're everywhere
Your portrait fills the sky
I'm gonna wrap my arms 'round you
My universal child

And when I look into your eyes
So innocent and pure
I see the shadows of the things
That you've had to endure

I see the tracks of every tear
That ran right down your face
I see the hurt, I see the pain
I see the human race

And I can feel you, you're everywhere
Shining like the sun
I wish to God that kids like you
Could be like everyone

How many tumbles must it take
Before you learn to fly?
I'm gonna help you spread your wings
My universal child

I'm gonna help you find a way
To keep you safe from harm
We're gonna build a special place
A shelter from the storm

I can feel you, you're everywhere
Shining like the sun
I wish to God that kids like you
Could be like everyone

And I wish to God that kids like you
Could be like everyone
