I’ve looked into your eyes and I’ve seen my reflection,
Walked down your street and it takes me home.
I have seen you cry, felt the tears on my face
When you’ve been out there all alone.‘Cause when it comes down to what matters,
We’re cut from the same cloth.
When one of us is suffering, we suffer the same loss.And when we cry, cry together,
When we survive, we survive together.
And when we rise we rise together,
Our destinies are tied together.

Wherever you may live, whoever you might be
What’s happening to you, is happening to me.
How can I turn away, pretend that I don’t see
What’s happening to you, is happening to me.

I look into your eyes and there’s a sudden recollection,
We all share a common ground.
We cannot erase that family connection,
No matter how many bridges are burnin’ down.

We walk this road together and everyone falls sometimes.
Gotta help each other, can’t leave anyone behind.

And when we cry, cry together,
When we survive, we survive together.
And when we rise we rise together,
Our destinies are tied together.

Wherever you may live … etc.

We cannot allow the savagery of hatred anymore
Or the legacy of violence to go on.

Wherever you may live … etc.
