Can We - Can They

Can we find hope 
In the gloom of the night 
And live long enough 
Long enough to see 
The harmony of the dawn 
Can we reconcile ourselves 
With the center of thought 
And join with the others 
The others who also desire to see 
The calm of the daylight 
Can you feel the pain 
Of a child of theirs 
And can they feel the pain 
The pain of our mothers' tears 
To reconcile at daybreak 
Can we find common ground
Overwhelm the left and the right 
And allow the sun 
The sun to rise in the morning 
To see the coming of a new day 
Can we lay aside our differences 
Acknowledge each other 
And understand each other's right 
The right to live in peace 
To live in the glory of the sunrise
