You know, there is a rainbow Shining strong tonight Across the dark skies In the evening light. It shines for the angels Who of us take care; Who, amidst the danger, Care enough to dare. It shines for the heroes Who saved us again; If we are alive It is down to them. It shines for all those Who the pain endure; It shines for all those Fighting for a cure. It shines in the dark Of the bygone day, Promising a better Future, come what may. For whenever we Feel the pain's too strong The heroes stand and Whisper "carry on". *** Yes, there is a rainbow Shining through the night; It's the light of those Who help us win this fight. So, though times be hard And dreams seem so few, The world will rise To say: "thank you". Because you have gifted Our lives anew This whole world will rise To say to you: "thank you".

Stuck in my house With nothing to eat, Stuck in my mind, Feeling dead beat Stuck in my heart My body hurts so ... Stuck in my soul With nowhere to go ... I'm in quarantine They've locked us away To fight this virus We're home to stay It could be worse It's a small price to pay For staying well, We have to do as they say ... *** I am alone Friends not with me, I cannot go Outside and feel free ... I know they're people Who are ever so ill, And there are those Who fight for us, still ... I'm in quarantine They've locked us away To fight this virus We home have to stay *** It could be worse It's a small price to pay For staying well, We have to do as they say ... I'm in quarantine. *** Stuck in my house With nothing to eat, Stuck in my mind, It's all on repeat Stuck in my heart My body hurts so ... Stuck in my soul With nowhere to go ... I am alone Friends not with me, I cannot go Outside and feel free ... I know they're people Who are ever so ill, And there are those Who fight for us, still ... I'm in quarantine.

From my window, to yours, there is a light Illuminating our faces so bright It is the moon, from whom we can no longer hide Our love and our blushes; not tonight. She knows our souls, our feelings and our fight To have our love out, in open sight; To have our feelings solemnised by rite; A love which started with a simple date. A date which took place so long ago And when I saw you last, I just don't know; But what I know is that I miss you so, Even as sunrise calls and says we have to go. *** They say that eyes are the windows of the soul; They say that, once they meet and click, the rest's no more; They say that love can travel across time and space, Which seems true for the entire human race. When our eyes first met, there was nought more to say; I knew we'd love each other, come what may; Alas; the world, as always, stands in our way; For when I'll see you again, God only knows the day. *** From my window, to yours, there is a heart That beats as one for us, never apart; Our thoughts with one another at this time For I am ever yours, as you are mine. And yes, our dates took place so long ago And when I'll see you again, I just don't know; But what I know is that I'll never go, For nought will keep me away from this window Whilst I'm loved so ... until we meet once more.

I know it's dark outside But, baby, hold my hand; For I am all alone In this strange, foreign land. I know that you are scared, But, baby, so am I; You know it is too soon For what we have to die. So stay here as I fight This one more fight I have; If anything will help It is your sincere love. And, as I breathe, stand by To hold me - oh what bliss It is to be in your arms And feel your one more kiss. And as the dawn arrives And saved we are once more I owe it all to you And nothing's as before. So stay here as I fight This fight just one more time; And then, once it's all done Forever ... and ever ... you'll be mine.

When I was young, My Mama said to me "My dearest child, you won't go wrong If this advice you'll heed ... Make Truth, Love, Peace, Your Holy Trinity; And ever happy be! So come and sing with me: Truth, Love, Peace. Is it too much to ask? Truth, Love, Peace ... I'll sing from dawn to dusk. Truth, Love, Peace ... Is it too much to wish for? Truth, Love, Peace, please ...- And let our spirits soar." *** My Mama's older now And long since I've not seen Her wrinkled face; her gentle words Are with me, inside, still ... "Please, child, trust me; You never will go wrong If Truth, Love, Peace Is your life's powerful song!" Truth, Love, Peace. Is it too much to ask? Truth, Love, Peace ... I'll sing from dawn to dusk. Truth, Love, Peace ... Is it too much to wish for? Truth, Love, Peace, please ...- And let our spirits soar. *** [BRIDGE] *** My Mama's waiting for me now, To visit her again; In these tough times, she's wondering How, lately, I have been. I miss her so, just one more hug I want to her to give; And let her know I've always tried To practice what we've preached: Truth, Love, Peace. Is it too much to ask? Truth, Love, Peace ... I'll sing from dawn to dusk. Truth, Love, Peace ... Is it too much to wish for? Truth, Love, Peace, please ... And let our spirits soar.
