How much water is inside a tear,
And how long does it take to dry them?
As long as there is misery and fear
In the people who continue to cry them.
How much water is inside a flood
And how long does it take to recede?
As long as it takes to restore hope
To the people in desperate need.
How much water is inside a storm
And how long does it take to clear?
As long as it takes to rebuild a home
And restore everything that is dear.
How much water is inside a city
When a levee suddenly breaks?
As many as are the tears that are cried
When so many million hearts break.
