Youth Asylum – Little Johnny lyrics

(Its gonna be a brighter day)

I know it's gonna be a brighter day
Cuz little Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way)

Lookin' in his mama's eyes
All he sees is the tears she cries
Don't have a clue what really lies ahead (oh no...)
Is he gonna have to find his way
Cuz guns n drugs r getting carried away
These are things that keep runnin' through mama's head...
(No no no no no no no)

I know it's gonna be a brighter day
Cuz little Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way...) (Y.A. help me sing...)
He's gonna need a little time to grow
But little Johnny's got tomorrow
And I know, he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way...) (Y.A. help me sing...)

Now listen as the siren goes by
It's another mother's turn to cry
Oh why, did we ever let the world turn so cold
(so cold, so cold...)
Well I know Johnny's gonna make a change
He knows the road he's got to rearrange
To make it better for his kids when he gets old
(No no no no no no no...)

I know it's gonna be a brighter day
Cuz little Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way...) (Y.A. help me sing...)
He's gonna need a little time to grow (ooh yea ooh yea)
But little Johnny's got tomorrow
And I know, he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way...) (Y.A. help me...)

How'd we ever let the world turn so cold
People fightin and killing at twelve years old
Don't you dare let the devil steal your soul
Take you from the light and put you in control
Play you for a fool
And send you up in your school
Blastin' guns and having kids on the run
Then you take your own life
But you cant hide
Cuz now you find yourself face to face with God
Go back and rewind, it's a new day
So we can do it a better way
We've gotta get it right for the sake of little Johnny
Cuz today, he looked into the eyes of his mama

This goes out to all the children that lost their lives in through senseless violence
At Columbine High School in Colorado
Heritage High in Georgia
Heath High School in Kentucky
Pearl High in Mississippi
the west side Middle School in Arkansas
and from South Central to Harlem World
one love

I know it's gonna be a brighter day
Cuz little Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way...) (Y.A. help me sing...)
He's gonna need a little time to grow
(ooh yea ooh yea...)
But little Johnny's got tomorrow
And I know, he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(a better way, a better way...) (Y.A. help me sing...)

I know it's gonna be a brighter day
Cuz little Johnny was born today
And he's gonna be the one to find us a better way
(Y.A. help me sing...)
He's gonna need a little time to grow
(A time to grow...)
But little Johnny's got tomorrow
And I know, he's gonna be the one to find us a better way

Will you help me?
