Espera

This song is by Esperanza Spalding and appears on the album Esperanza (2008).

People, I almost gave up holding on,
Watching us give into our fears.
I almost believe,
Almost believe.

All the world is helpless sorrow.
No hope for a bright tomorrow.
But I'm not sure enough
To give it up, no.

Now as I learn how I must work for change,
I nearly cave in from the weight.
I almost believe,
Almost believe.

All the sorrows will consume me
Till peace among men I never can see.
But I'm not sure enough to give it up.

I'll keep faith.
Like so many souls who won't be drowned
By evil in the world,
I have faith in mankind
That we can guide our choices towards a healthy world
In time to ease our bind,
For only hard work through time
Can change men's minds.
I know if we make some small changes now,
We'll heal ourselves, some way, somehow.

I don't expect to ever taste the fruit,
My life devoted could bring forth.
I almost believe,
Well, I do believe.

Oh the path to peace is endless,
So, choosing to close our eyes makes our faults mendless,
Of this I'm sure enough,
I won't give up,
I'm sure enough,
And I won't give up,
Oh I'm sure enough,
And I won't give up.
