Down town to underdogs who
Put their favorite artists on the walls and
Can never get enough of one song
So what plays and it plays all day long
Cause all the pain outside they don't wanna see
So they write songs constantly
Cause a doctor or a lawyer they don't wanna be
And I ask do you really have grow up just to be what you wanna be?
So shout out to the mc's and the divas and the singers and the prom queens
And the folks who don't ever get invited to the party
But somehow be the first on the scene
To the folks who just wanna be free
Took all that age you two youngs you can't see
Ask them when was the last time they had a dream
Cause every river leads to the sea, to the sea

Hope is a river that runs random, a stream of floating desires
Casting your fears away, as it flows above the skies, the skies
Where your worries will drown out
You imagine how it would be right now
Casting your fears away as it flows above the skies, the skies
Hope is a river, hope is a river, hope is a river
Hope is a river, hope is a river, hope is a river
Hope is a river, of dreams afraid to be real, real, real, to be real

He yo world, and I pray for the good days, for the world to be a better place
Cause I know one day will be a better way, everyone could have a getaway
When we go into a place where there's love in ours now, ours now, ours now
And I know that one day will be a way from the gun play
Cause somehow all the pain got a sudden change
Take away all the pain and the hate to this love now
The world is a big danger, we're leaving right now

Hope is a river that runs random, a stream of floating desires
Casting your fears away, as it flows above the skies, the skies
Where your worries will drown out
You imagine how it would be right now
Casting your fears away as it flows above the skies, the skies
Hope is a river, hope is a river, hope is a river
Hope is a river, hope is a river, hope is a river
Hope is a river, of dreams afraid to be real, real, real, to be real
