Doin' the best we can with what we got. Doin' the best we can with what we got. When people are acting strange, Remember we can all change And we're all doin' the best we can with what we got. I don't know what you've been through. I don't see thru your eyes. You don't know where I come from. Life flows smoother when we realize... (chorus) I believe that I know best, But everyone makes mistakes. You believe that you know the way. We all do whatever we think it takes. (chorus) I should've known, but it seemed Like a good idea at the time. You didn't know, you were misinformed. Understand and we'll get along fine. (chorus) Nobody's got the same. You don't know their pain. Everybody's doin' what they can. Oh, we're all doin' the best we can with what we got.

Me, Too 04:43
Me, too. Me, too. It started when I was five, and he'd come into my bed in the night. It didn't feel right. He said, "Don't tell." Me, too. My teacher looked at me that way. He said "Your grade depends on what you do." It didn't feel true, so I dropped out. Me, too. I was walking on a country road. He stopped his truck, he hit me hard. Just stay alive. I didn't dare feel, but I survived. And when we tell our story, we can rise up and cry "No more" The time has come to heal the centuries of pain, To stop the fear, to change the game. Break open the conspiracy of silence. We are not alone. Me, too. He said "We're working side by side. To get ahead, you've got to get along." I didn't feel strong, and I needed the job. Me, too. He said he loved me and he'd change. It was my fault that he was so mad. I didn't feel safe, so I escaped. I survived. And when we tell our story, we can rise up and cry "No more, no more." The time has come to heal the centuries of pain, To stop the fear, to change the game. Break open the conspiracy of silence. We are not alone. Together we are strong. And when we speak the truth, we will be free. This. Stops. Now.

Chorus: All over the world All people just want to be so free, Free to be happy, healthy, living in peace. Here, right where we stand, Right now, we have the power to choose how we, How we will shine and be a light in the world. 1. How will people remember me? What good can I do? How, how will I be the answer? When will I claim the power in my hands? What will I make of my life? 2. Who is waiting for me right now? How am I to serve? What, what are the worthy questions? When will I heed the calling of my heart? What am I listening for? Shine, shine, be a light in the world. Shine, shine, be a light.

For the women who went before us, For the women who are rising up. We are strong and free, sisters, Strong and free.

|: Like a mighty wind, the Holy Spirit blows away my fear. :| Moving through me, Wake me up! Like a mighty wind, the Holy Spirit blows away my fear. Hoo... Hoo... Like a rising tide, the Holy Spirit wash away my blues. Whoosh... Whooosh... Like a shining star, the Holy Spirit illuminate my way. Ahhh... ahhh... Like a laughing child, the Holy Spirit open up my heart. (Giggle... giggle...) Ahhh... ahhh.... Whoosh... whoosh... Hoo... hoo...

Darkness is fading. The Light is returning, Turning, turning, turning round Sun, moon, welcome the light. Know that the light is returning.

Wrapped in the Arms of Angels Wrapped in the arms of angels, Resting in perfect peace. Surrounded by love from heaven above, Protecting and guiding me. Wrapped in the arms of angels, Rising above the fear. Look left and look right, all Beings of Light, Awakening hearts are here.
