Love is Gonna Break Through

by Chris Rice

 

Hear a newborn baby cry;

Hear the farmers pray for rain;

One more soldier gives his life;

A homeless man begs for change.

But change won't come easily--

What does this have to do with me?

 

And my heart pounds with the thunder;

And I stop and wonder,

What should we do with life's surprises?

Every day the sun rises on us.

Like a swingset in a graveyard,

Like a bloom in the desert sand--

Look at my trembling hands--

'Cause it hits me like lightning that love must keep fighting

And somehow, every time,

 

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

 

World inside a clear, blue sky

Teeming with humanity;

Tears and laughter intertwine our

Comedies and Tragedies;

And History is a runaway--

But not so far that Love can't find and save

 

And my heart pounds with the thunder

And I stop and wonder,

What should we do with life's surprises?

Every day the sun rises on us.

Like a swingset in a graveyard,

Like a bloom in the desert sand--

Look at my trembling hands--

'Cause it hits me like lightning that love must keep fighting

And somehow, every time,

 

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

 

It takes my breath

It's come to this:

We all bleed red;

We can't resist

The changing wind

The rolling tide

Come on, get on the winning side

 

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

Love is gonna break through

 

And my heart pounds with the thunder

And I stop and wonder,

What should we do with life's surprises?

Every day the sun rises on us.

Like a swingset in a graveyard,

Like a bloom in the desert sand--

Look at my trembling hands--

'Cause it hits me like lightning that love must keep fighting

And somehow, every time,

 

Love is gonna break through
