They leave their houses, leave their homes
Against their human sanity
Thousands of humans on the run
They are traveling on hope
Everything is different here
Everyone speaks different here
They tell you to behave their way
They see you as danger or the prey
You are traveling on hope
They look at her differently
“You don’t look like us”
She´s trapped in her timidity
No one there to trust
She is reaching out for hope
“Hey you wanna play with me?”
A little boy tries to see
Behind the hatred, behind the fear
Finally, friendship, acceptation near
He is giving her hope
I still miss home and all I knew
It seems to be so long ago
It sometimes makes me kind of blue
But support of friends let me grow
My hope is slowly rising
We are all humans after all
We should catch everyone who falls
What makes you better than the others?
Why make a difference in nations or colors?
We are all traveling on hope!
von Maike und Levina
