"The love we need to find"

The love we need to do the love we need to share with others
Why do we fight in our lives because we hurt so much in our sweet soul as a child in our soul that plays in our mind still as we grow up we hold our heads and ask why God me
Why do we let the people who we hurt keep crying to themselves they need our tenderness and care
The love we need to become
As we lay to sleep we ask in our mind God please help me to stop thinking the way I do help me overcome this hurt in my heart
We think God can't help us but he can pore the red wine of hope to our hearts
Please forgive all the human soul that tears in fear all days there lives oh why do we look to the sky and tears run down our face where is my God
Please help us God to overcome our fears
Stop the killing stop the gun fires that people do in the streets because they hurt too they matter but no one seems to hear them crying for love
But God will take you in my child no more crys in the night
The love we need to overcome
The love we need overcome
