A Change is Gonna Come

It's dark in the city
I've lost my pride
The lights in the street hid the 
Stars from my eyes

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know a change is gonna come

It's too hard livin'
But I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know what's up there
Just beyond the sky

It's been a long, long time comin'...

I miss my family
My little girl
She is my princess
I'd give her the world

It's been a long, long time comin'... 

I just need some comfort
Some kind of belief
That this war we're fighting
Can really bring some peace

There's no rhyme, no reason
No sweet melody
More and more weapons
Mean less security

It's been a long, long time comin'... 

I'm tryin' to find it
Some better place
Where having the biggest gun
Ain't some kind of race

It's been a long, long time comin'...

There've been times I've thought
I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able
To carry on

It's been a long, long time comin'...
