Lyrics

There is freedom within, there is freedom without 
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup 
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost 
But you'll never see the end of the road 
While you're traveling with me 

Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over 
Hey now, hey now, when the world comes in 
They come, they come to build a wall between us 
We know they won't win 
Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof 

My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof 
In the paper today tales of war and of waste 
But you turn right over to the T.V. page 

Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over 
Hey now, hey now, when the world comes in 
They come, they come to build a wall between us 
We know they won't win 

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum 
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart 
Only the shadows ahead barely clearing the roof 
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief 

Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over 
Hey now, hey now, when the world comes in 
They come, they come to build a wall between us 
We know they won't win 

Don't let them win 
Hey now, hey now 
Hey now 
Hey now, hey now 
Don't let them win 
Hey now, hey now 
Don't let them win 
Hey now, hey now
