Some kids have it some kids don't
And some of us are wondering why
And mom won't watch the news at night
There's too much stuff that's making her cry

We need some help
Down here on earth
A thousand prayers
A million words

But one voice was heard
A house, a yard, a neighborhood
Where you can ride your new bike to school
A kind of world where mom and dad
Still believe the golden rule
Life's not that simple
Down here on earth
A thousand prayers
A million words

But one voice was heard
One voice, one simple word
Hearts know what to say
One dream can change the world
Keep believing, till you find your way
Yesterday while walking home
I saw some kid on Newberry Road
He pulled a pistol from his bag

And tossed it in the river below
Thanks for the help
Down here on earth
A thousand prayers
A millions words

But one voice was heard
One voice was heard
One voice was heard

    To me,i belive that billy gilman wrote this song to tell people that they have a voice to use,whenever you need it,it'll be there.

    Based on the song, i understand that it's important for us to pray. We should not be afraid to ask for help because we never know what may become of it. Our voice may be heard.

    *for those of you who are nonreligious, at least consider god. I mean he has to be up there, right? The world's goodness is deteriorating and people need to realize that god can save us. -a hopeful christian
