Still a Lot of Love

“So to those who are saying this country’s filled with hate, what you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same…”


Still A Lot of Love

 

I see people helping strangers

Who are on the highway broken down

I see neighbors helping neighbors

After a storm comes through their town

I see firemen carrying babies as if they were their own

Running out of the flames on the TV news

Then I hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

But from what I see…it ain’t true

There’s still a lot of love,

There’s still a lot of love…here in America

 

I hear applause in the airports

For the soldiers coming home

I hear nurses cry for the feeble

Who feel lost and all alone

I see hands reaching deep, way down in the pockets

To feed the poor…and ease the pain

So to those who are saying

This country’s filled with hate

What you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America

 

There’s still a lot of good hearts giving out sweet smiles

Still a lot of willing souls going those extra miles

Still a lot of kind words, still a lot of good deeds

It’s no wonder people want to come here but nobody wants to leave.

 

I still see cars coming to a stop

When the hearse comes down the road

I still see the young ones helping out the old

I still see friends of missing children giving up their time

To search the fields…side by side

 

So when we hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

We all know that ain’t so

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America
