Espera (Esperanza Spalding)

People I almost gave up holding on Watching us give into our fears I almost believe Almost believe All the world is helpless sorrow No hope for a bright tomorrow But I'm not sure enough To give it up...no Now as I learn how I must work for change I nearly cave in from the weight I almost believe Almost believe All the sorrows will consume me 'til peace among men I never can see But I'm not sure enough to give it up I'll keep faith Like so many souls who won't be drowned By evil in the world I HAVE FAITH IN MANKIND That we can guide our choices towards a healthy world In time to ease our bind For only hard work through time Can change men's minds, I know If we make some small changes now We'll heal ourselves, some way, some how I don't expect to ever taste the fruit My life devoted could bring forth I almost believe Well I do believe Oh the path to peace is endless So, choosing to close our eyes makes our fault mendless Of this I'm sure enough I WON'T GIVE UP I'M SURE ENOUGH AND I WON'T GIVE UP I'M SURE ENOUGH AND I WON'T GIVE UP
