it’s raining (somewhere else)

you don’t see what I see
you don’t hear what I hear
(but we can be free
the day is near)

you and I are of a different breed
but of same heart, despite the names
(as when we bleed
we bleed the same)

let us walk side by side
your fight will also be mine
(you don’t need to hide
I promise you’ll be fine)

the world needs more people
who are kind and have a heart
(people help the people
nothing sets us apart)

it may not be raining here
but it’s raining, somewhere else
(standing on the frontier
you hear the distant bells)
