Why you want to shud op your school today?
Why you want to shud op your school today?
Think about it
Think about it
Think think think
About it
Think about it

(Chorus)
Hold on, be strong
No matter what you're goin' through
You know it's gonna be okay, okay, today
Even when the earth quakes

(Wyclef):
Like I said on BET, from the hood to the projects to the mansion,
So you got no excuse
Stop blaming the recession,
Go harder for Haiti
Send a text on your phone, Y E L E, 5 0 1 5 0 1

Every block, every school, dream initiation
Say we wanna make it a better place, like Michael Jackson
We don't wanna see another life lost out there

Wish I had talked to them teenagers, with the rpg's
Goin' on ahead with the navy seals
I would've told them listen better

(Chorus)
Hold on, (there's gotta be a better way) be strong
No matter what you'Ђ™re goin through
You know it's gonna be okay, okay, today, today
Even when the earth quakes

We gotta hold on, hold on, be strong, be strong
I know that you don'Ђ™t think that I can read your palms
But I see the dawn, the dawn, beyond
You know I can see the sunlight

And if the rain falls down,
It ain'Ђ™t nothing but a blessing today,
The sun will shine after the rain dries

(Mavado):
Whoever tells that gone, memories live on, I guess
See you at the crossroad
So many cry when we die and they wonder if we're in the sky
See you at the crossroad

I see you in my dream, that man that can't see
But don't worry, see you at the crossroad
Remember we still a team and I know you can hear me now
See you at the crossroad

(Chorus)
Hold on(there gotta be a better way), be strong
No matter what you're goin through
You know it's gonna be ok, ok, today, today
Even when the earth quakes

We gotta hold on, hold on, be strong, be strong
I know that you don't think that I can read your palms
But I see the dawn, the dawn, beyond
You know I can see the sunlight

And if the rain falls down,
It ain'Ђ™t nothing but a blessing today,
The sun will shine after the rain dries

(Wyclef):
She wants to know, she wanna know how long I been playin'
As long as my mother, as long as my momma she been prayin'
She bought me a guitar, she bought me a guitar at eleven
She ain't want me be usin mac 11's

When I sing, so when I said daddy was gone 'til November
I knew, I knew that he wouldn't be back in November
Cause I could've been the one in the bank with the shank
With park with the ski mask
But my bank is the stage with my 12 gauge

(Chorus)
Hold on, (we gotta find a better way) be strong, be strong
No matter what you're goin through,
You know it's gonna be ok, ok, today, today
Even when the earth quakes

We gotta hold on, hold on, be strong, be strong
I know that you don't think that I can read your palms
But I see the dawn, the dawb, beyond
You know that I can see the sunlight

And if the rain falls down,
It ain't nothin' but a blessin' today
The sun will shine, after the rain dries

If the rain falls down,
It ain't nothin' but a blessin' today,
The sun will shine, after the rain dries, rain dries, rain dries
