There's a little boy waiting for the bus on Third Avenue's edge
He holds 25 cents for the ride in his freezing fist
Cause that's the only way he can make it cross town for an education
But he thinks – I can do this
There's a little girl on the other side of the city drying her eyes
Cause she's going to school with her new look for the first time
She puts her hat over her balding head and gives her mom her kiss
And she says – I can do this
Chorus:
They try so hard each day just to survive
Two kids so young so precious trying to fight for their lives
They are so strong even after all the heartache they've been living with
And if they can do that – I can do this
There's a woman in a bedroom packing up her bags
She knows she has to move fast if she wants to get away

She looks at her body covered in bruises and she turns to her kids
And thinks – I can do this
Chorus:
They try so hard each day just to survive
A mother and her children having to run for their lives
They are so strong even after all the heartache they've been living with
And if they can do that – I can do this
Yes, this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do
But when I think of all the pain and suffering others have gone through
I know that somehow I'll survive
God will see us through
I can do this
I can do this
I can do this
I can do this
God will see us through
