There's a reality of the way it should be and a reality of the way it is.
Looking out from my window Staring out as the world goes Is this the way life is supposed to be? Gangs in the street are fighting Some people think living is dying An innocent life lets out a scream
Chorus: This isn't the way life was supposed to be It wasn't like this in the beginning This isn't the way life was supposed to be A world cries and in these eyes I see A fallen world falling around me
Out here people are hating Down the street someine is praying Some shake their fists in agony Crying out to the creator It's gotta change sooner or later But, things just seem to stay the same
Looking out from my window Staring out as the world goes Trying to figure out in my mind Why can't we start living in the hope that God's giving The hope our hearts were meant to find
