And a new hope lights in youYou feel the tears in your eyes
And prayer out your lips you hearSomeone’s happiness gives you hope
Their love brings you cheerYou see today is not yours
But tomorrow will comeAnd the twinkle in your eyes return
And the sadness in your voice goneIt's true happiness is contagious
And you can steal someYou have the right to be happy
And you have the right to claim love.
