Conviction of the heart

Where are the dreams that we once had?
this is the time to bring them back.
what were the promises caught
on the tips of our tongues?
do we forget or forgive?
thereand's a whole other life waiting to be lived when...
one day weand're brave enough
to talk with conviction of the heart.
and down your streets iand've walked alone,
as if my feet were not my own
such is the path i chose,
doors i have opened and closed
iand'm so tired of living this life,
fooling myself, believing weand're right when...
iand've never given love
with any conviction of the heart.
one with the earth, with the sky
i believe weand'll survive
if we only try...
how long must we wait to change
this world bound in chains that we live in
to know what it is to forgive,
and to be forgiven?
itand's been too many years of talking now.
isnand't it time to stop somehow?
air thatand's too angry to breathe
water our children canand't drink
youand've heard it hundreds of times
you say youand're aware, believe and you care, but...
do you care enough
to talk with conviction of the heart?
