Hate never wins It burns itself out on a hundred victim pyres consuming the souls of the haters whereas love burns eternal with the spirit light A silver thread which knits us together They are many, but we are one.
Love connects people In their compassion, the knowledge of how a mother feels When her child is taken Lives with me, although my children are but a phone call away I feel her pain, her loss I want to be able to turn back time Give those children back to their families I don't want one to suffer as I know they are I want to be able to hug them and say it's all right I want to be able to step into their lives and heal it And I can't... But we are one, though they be many.
I can't bear to think about the sudden end The fear, the pain, the last thoughts I can't bear to imagine what it's like To run for your life I can't bear to think about the families Learning that the goodbye they said happily Was the last one to be said Learning that the goodbye hug Was the last one to be felt and they couldn't know it. We are one and they cannot break us.
Hate never wins Darkness is a prelude to the light Dawn breaks Chasing away the night What endures is the love, Hate never wins, For we are one.
