Hey World (Don't Give Up)
by Michael Franti
Hi.....so I was away. Thank you to @Ulittletwit and @debutch for the knocking on my cave door.

Life has been a bit hectic lately (nothing bad per se) I was just feeling a bit overwhelmed.
I also was feeling tremendously guilty..... I just didn't have time to listen to everyone's posts. I used to listen to GJB at work while charting at end of the shift, but they cut off our internet use with threats of being written up....the internet police monitor our computers weekly
so I withdrew.... from here, facebook.....

I missed you all.....so I am sort of back. I can't post like I used to....and until the holidays are over I am not sure how much I can listen....but this song came on the radio this am, it just hit home and I had to share.
Powerful lyrics ..... and very relevant.

ell me why the grass was greener
Years ago, I swear, it used to grow here
But no more here

Tell me why on this hill
All the birds they used to come to fly here
Come to die here

Tell me why I need to know
Sometimes I wish I didn't have to know
All you've shown me

Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

Tell me why, on the corner
All the kids that used to come to run here
Load their guns here

And tell me why it's okay to kill in the name of the Gods we pray
Tell me who said it's okay to die in the name of the lies we say
Tell me why there's child soldiers
Tell me why they close the borders
Tell me how to fight disease, and
Tell me now, won't you please

The only thing I want to do
Is to be in the arms of someone who
Believes in me, like I believe in you

And I say
Hey world what you say
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say
Should I stick for around for another day
Hey world what you say
Should I stick for around for another day or two?

Don't give up on me, I won't give up
And I try, try, try, try
I try, try, try, try
On you
Don't give up on me
And I cry, cry, cry, cry
I cry, cry, cry, cry
You
Just believe in me like I believe

Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day
Hey world, what you say
Should I stick around for another day or two?

Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you
Just believe in me like I believe in you

Don't give up on me

Hey world, what you say
