UNIVERSAL CHILD

How Many mountains must you face
Before you learn to climb
I’m gonna give you what it takes
My Universal Child

I’m gonna try to find a way
To keep you safe from harm
I’m gonna build a special place
A shelter from the storm
And I can see you you’re everywhere
Your portrait fills the sky
I’m gonna wrap my arms around you
My universal child
And when I look into your eyes
So innocent and pure
I see the shadows of the things
That you’ve had to endure
I see the tracks
Of every tear that ran right down your face
I see the hurt
I see the pain
I see the human race

And I can feel you
You’re everywhere
Shining like the sun
And I wish to god
That kids like you
Could be like everyone
How many tumbles
Must it take
Before you learn to fly
I’m gonna help you
Spread your wings
My Universal Child

I’m gonna help you find a way
To keep you safe from harm
We’re gonna build a special place
A shelter from the storm
I can feel you
You’re everywhere
Shining like the sun
And I wish to god
That kids like you
Could be like everyone
