Every day we...struggle to find ourselves,
Struggle to find our faith,
Struggle with learning to live with,
Pain that has such a bitter taste
Every night we...relive the day,
The ones that came before,
Thinking about the future,
And what's in store
And...then...we
Fall asleep,
And then we dream,
Wondering just who...

We will one day be

On...our...knees...
Living with love, living with laughter,
Living every day, that's all that matters!
On...our...knees...
If we open our hearts, then we will see,
The rhythm of our lives, the melody

Every day we...reach out our hands,
To someone who is in need of it,
Someone who is a puzzle,
And the pieces just don't fit
Every night we...remember all the ones we meet,
Remember all the songs we sing,
Remember the ones that we love,
And how to us, they mean everything
And...then...we
Fall asleep,
And then we dream,
Wondering just who...

We will one day be

On...our...knees...
Living with love, living with laughter,
Living every day, that's all that matters!
On...our...knees...
If we open our hearts, then we will see,
The rhythm of our lives, the melody

Everyone lives with the sorrow of ages,
Everyone feels so frustrated,
And everyone grieves...
Everyone loses their illusions,
Everyone lives in confusion,
And everyone bleeds...

And everyone dreams...

Wondering just who...

They could one day be!

On...our...knees...
Living with love, living with laughter,
Living every day, that's all that matters!
On...our...knees...
If we open our hearts, then we will see,
The rhythm of our lives, the melody!
On...our...knees...
Everyone lives with their own shame,
Everyone has a share of the blame
On...our...knees...
Living with love, living with laughter,
And everyone has to see that everyone matters!
On...our...knees...
If we open our hearts, then we will see,
The rhythm of our lives, the melody...

There is a rhythm to our lives, a melody, we simply have to see it for what it is, and flow with it, instead of fighting it.

I know some will cry, and it's ok.

I cried writing it. It happens more than you know.

Sometimes, being heard doesn't require screaming, we simply have to say the right words, quietly. Words are so powerful, so beautiful, and they, like all things, have a melody.

Listen to it. :heart:

I like it... but I think it could be more fitting if it was called On Our Knees instead... but I do like it!

Thank you. :)

The point of the piece wasn't our being on our knees, but listening to the rhythm of life. :)
