India Arie – There's Hope lyrics

[Verse:]:
Back when I had a little
I thought that I needed a lot
A little was over rated,
But a lot was a little too complicated
You see-Zero didn't satisfy me
A million didn't make me happy
That's when I learned a lesson
That it's all about your perception
Hey-are you a pauper or a superstar
So you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain't about the size of your car
It's about the size of the faith in your heart

[Chorus:]
There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
(repeat)

There's hope

[Verse 2:]:
Off in the back country of Brazil
A met a young brotha that made me feel
That I could accomplish anything.
You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors
He lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight,
But that didn't keep him from seein' the light
He said, what's it like in the usa,
And all I did was complain
He said-living here is Paradise
He taught me paradise in in your mind
You know that

[Chorus:]

[Bridge:]:
Every time I turn on the T. V. (There's Hope)
Somebody's acting crazy (There's Hope)
If you let it, it will drive you crazy (There's Hope)
But I'm takin' back my power today (There's Hope)
Gas prices they just keep on rising (There's Hope)
The government they keep on lying
But we gotta keep on surviving
Keep living our truth and do the best we can do

[Chorus:]

Stand up for your rights (echo)
Keep shining your light (echo)
And show the world your smile (echo)
2x

[Chorus:]
