Lyrics

every now and then
i'm gonna make you cry
you won't remember when
i won't remember why
every peace I find
seems to rise to say
live for every light
live for every day

i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand to the promised land

little girl you're all we've got for now
you've gotta find a way to save us now
it's turning dark and soon the chill will come
if you find it in your heart would you find me some?

i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand to the promised land

i'll say goodbye and say farewell, it seems
my work is done–no more chasing dreams
if you left, leave my heart to spare
we could part but i'd still find you there

i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand, i raise my hand
i raise my hand to the promised land
