But one day they will see beyond the rainbows and butterflies,
The grey scale will take cover someday.
It will rain one day and take it all away from you.
Helpless and hopeless as you stand today.
You shall see the light again striking from within the dark clouds.
Untouchable as it has always been for you.
Always raise your hand to it,
Because hope is all we’ve got.
