    "Let The Healing Begin" Lyrics

    I've kept it inside much too long
    There's no relief
    Carry it around just like a stone
    Too heavy for me

    I have paid the price of standing
    On the outside looking in

    It's time to let the healing begin

    A boy is strung out he's going through hell
    His mother weeps
    His spirit is broken and there's nothing left
    Just a terrible need

    And the days are marked by the heaviness of the heart
    It never mends
    Until the healing begins

    And the tension prowels the streets like an animal
    The people stay behind their locks and chains
    It's a shame
    When so many are trying their best to live as one
    And the smoke from the fires covers up the sun

    A young girl is lying in the dirt
    Her dreams ended there
    Caught in the crossfire on somebody's turf
    Hatred in the air

    It's a voice that never sings
    A winter without the spring
    It never ends
    Time to let the healing begin
    Time to let the healing begin
