(Michael Bolton)
(Tribute to Coretta Scott King)

Martin Luther King, Jr. Speaks
Coretta Scott King Speaks

Nobody ever warned you
Nobody could have ever known
The road that lay before you
The journey that would lead you home
How steep was the mountain
How long was the fight
In the face of something so wrong
Somebody had to make it right

Chorus:
The courage in your eyes
The wisdom in your smile
The strength within your heart
To walk the endless mile
The years have only shined upon your face
And showered you with dignity and grace
Like the way you live your life
And the light you've always shown
More than the world, more than the world
Has ever known

Through the night and the darkest hours
The promise and the faith you kept
Brought the fury and the danger
To your home where your children slept
You believed in a time for love
There'd never be a time for hate
What kind of woman keeps the dream alive
What kind of dream does a lifetime take

Chorus:
The courage in your eyes
The wisdom in your smile
The strength within your heart
To walk the endless mile
The years have only shined upon your face
Will shower you with dignity and grace
The way you've lived your life
And the light you've always shown
More than the world, more than this world
More than the world
Has ever known
