Emotionally rich song about perseverance


You have seen me - heard my cry and we dance - in the light
Knowing love we find forgiveness - breathe out the past

Breathing out our pain we surrender to the dance
Reaching out past the fear we find hope in the light - in the light

We have overcome the storm - found peace - once again
Giving up our selfish hands we kneel in the light

You can laugh at the truth and beg for the rain
You can sing about life and push down the pain
But where is the hope - where is fire - where is that drive - do you keep it inside

We've held on this long and danced through the pain
We can't give up - we can't turn back - there's higher ground - there's life to be found

The struggles - the sweat - the sorrow - through conflict - collision and chaos
You continue to live - succeed - achieve - deliver - you continue to dance

Cause you choose to breathe - you breathe
