All You Can Do Lyrics

All You Can Do - Willy Mason

 

Hopelessness in the alley

 

Alone draggin' his feet

He wasn't born that way

But life has just taught him defeat

So he waits to teach you distrust

From his cold home in the streets

 

And hope is all that you can do

 

Hopelessness is on the TV

Infecting sea to shining sea

In the worried eyes of our parents

Try as we might not to believe

And we tried pill and prescriptions

But drugs won't cure this disease

 

Hope is all that you can do

 

This is the new year

 

Nobody knows

 

Where we are going

 

What's down the road

 

The city is humming

 

The country is cold

 

But you give me something

 

Something like hope

 

Grew up without parents

To teach us wrong from right

So we turned towards many heroes

But still we couldn't sleep at night

So we searched and read and listened

To the songs old prophets sang

 

Let's all get together friends

 

And dance away the rain

 

It's time to get together friends

 

And dance away the rain

 

This is the new year

Nobody knows

 

Where we are going

 

What's down the road

 

The city is humming

The country is cold

 

But you give me something

 

 

Something like hope
