Light Inside

Light Inside Lyrics

There is a young girl, living on her own
A broken heart, a song unsung
Damaged goods, on the street
Her lessons of love are bittersweet

She’s got a gift that you’ll never know
Unless you help someone, who’s got no home
If you plant the seed, hope will grow
Her stone-cold heart will start to glow

There’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
There’s a new star in the sky
As a new baby cries
There’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
A new star in the sky
A new baby cries

You couldn’t go on; the world was insane
You’d talked to God, but you had no name
You found the candle but it had no flame
Up against the wall, you overcame

Hate closed the bridge, on the darkest night
Stay arm in arm, we’ll be alright
It’ll keep us warm.   It will never die
Love’s gonna rise up.  Yes, it’s gonna survive.

Cause there’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
There’s a new star in the sky
As a new baby cries
There’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
A new star in the sky
A new baby cries

Don’t treat others, like others
We’re sisters, and brothers
We’re Mothers and Fathers
We’re sons and we’re daughters
You’ve got to believe, we need one another
A rainbow of wonders
Comes in all colours

There’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
There’s a new star in the sky
As a new baby cries
There’s a light inside
Won’t be denied
A new star in the sky
A new baby cries

There are people in your community that need you, and I’m guessing you need to help them. 
So go ahead, do it.
Peace…tom j.
