MY LIFE, YOUR LIFE
I see you on TV, a little girl that is the same age as me,
I wish you could climb that steep hill, and we could meet and I would help you.
You carry dirty water to drink on your back,
If I’m thirsty, I just turn on the tap.
You have to run or walk to school,
I just go in the car from sweet home – that’s my way.
I complain in the traffic that the car moves too slow.
When you are in the burning sun, back bent low.
The food you eat is barely anything,
I eat too much and don’t finish everything.
You don’t have time to dream,
You have to think about now,
My head’s full of happy dreams,
Being famous, making machines.
I see you walk away – what will your future be? It’s not only up to you – it could be up to me.
You see, I could turn and forget about you, or I could make your dreams come true.
Through ADRA we could show you that we care,
And God is really everywhere.
Help ADRA to help, changing lives.
