A child is crying on the tv screen
Reminds us everyday of what has been
Wars a fought without an end in sight
The world's divided black and white

We know what's coming but no one acts
It's time to rise up and face the facts
If we don't try to make our move
There will soon be nothing left to prove

Ah...
And we don't wanna wait
Cause the wall's gonna
Break and we say
Ah...
And we all know what to do

Hold on and reach for the sun
One by one, we change how we're living
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over
Hold on, it's never too late
To change our faith, so don't you, let it go
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over

We can work it out
Keep moving on
We can still be strong
Just try to get along

Another city comes tumbling down
Another ocean makes a rumbling sound
Our generation is stained with crime
The next is bound to do the time

I remember what my mama said
That our differences are all in our heads
It doesn't matter what you've done before
We all wanna see what the future has in store

Ah...
No we don't wanna wait
Cause the wall's gonna
Break then we'll say
Ah...
Oh, it's time we play our part

(Yeah! )

Hold on, and reach for the sun
One by one, we change how we're living (how we're living)
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over ('til it's over)
Hold on, it's never too late (never too late)
To change our faith, so don't you, let it go
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over

We can work it out (ahh)
Keep moving on (ahh)
We can still be strong (ahh)
Just try to get along (ahh)

Ohh

We can work it out (ahh)
Keep moving on (ahh)
We can still be strong (ahh)
One by one, we change how we're living!

Hold on, and reach for the sun
One by one, we change how we're living (change how we're living, oh! )
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over (ain't over 'til it's over)
Hold on, it's never too late
To change our faith, so don't you, let it go (don't let it go)
Hold on, cause it ain't over 'til it's over

We can work it out
Keep moving on
We can still be strong
Just try to get along

Ohh!
We can work it out
Keep moving on
We can still be strong
Just try to get along

We can work it out
(Ahh, ahh)
Keep moving on
(Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)
(Ahh, ahh)
