(christopher ward/tim tickner/diana ross)Are we not more than hunger and musicAre we not more than harlequins and hornsAre we not more than color and drumsAre we not more than anger and danceGive me courage so I can spread it over my face and mouthGive me courage, give me courageGive me courage, give me courageI walk these city streets see the people thereLook into the eyes of quiet despairAnd the faces tell a story that words never canAnd it falls to everyone of us to try and understandOut of kindnessOne act of grace makes the world we walk a better placeHope is an open windowLove an open doorTo reach out for each otherIs what we came here forThrough an open windowWe can see the wayIf we hold on to each other, every dayWe build walls of suspicion with bars of fearsTell ourselves we’ll be safe in hereI know more brings us togetherThan keeps up apartFirst we got to tear down these walls within our heartsWe might be strangers, we can be friendsYou and I we both need to let somebody inHope is an open windowLove an open doorTo reach out for each otherIs what we came here forThrough an open windowWe can see the wayIf we hold on to each other, every dayGive me courage so I can spread over my face and mouthWe are secret rivers with shaking hips and crestsCome awake in our thunder so that our eyes can see behind treesGive me courage so I can spread over my face and mouthGive me courage, give me courageGive me courage, give me courageHope is an open windowLove’s an open doorTo reach out for each otherIs what we came here forThrough an open windowWe can see the wayIf we hold on to each other, every dayHope is an open windowLove an open doorGotta be there for each otherIs what we sent here forThrough an open windowWe can find a wayTo love one anotherHope is an open windowLove an open door
