lyrics

THAT'S WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE


I WOKE UP IN THE DRIVIN' RAIN
IN THE MIDDLE OF A WORLD I CAN'T EXPLAIN
I STOOD UP WHEN I HEARD THE CALL
TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT AND MAN THAT'S ALL
THAT'S WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE

NOT EVERYBODY GONNA WALK THAT LINE
IT'S A DANGEROUS THING WHEN YOU SPEAK YOUR MIND
SWALLOW YOUR FEAR CAUSE YOU CAN'T IGNORE
THE SOUND OF THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK NO MORE
THAT'S WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE


I JUST CANT TURN AWAY, THERE'S A VOICE INSIDE MY BRAIN
TELLIN' ME TO HELP MY BROTHER
UNTIL WE FIND A WAY, UNTIL WE SEE THAT DAY
THIS NIGHT ROLLS ON LIKE THUNDER
THAT'S WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE

I'VE SEEN THE FACE OF DARK DESPAIR
DON'T EVER WANT TO GO BACK THERE
WHEN THAT POOL OF PAIN IS CLEAR
I'LL SEE THAT PEACE AND LOVE APPEAR

GOTTA KNOCK DOWN ALL OF HATREDS' WALLS
AND SEE THE LIGHT BEFORE DARKNESS FALLS
I'LL RAISE MY SONG UP TO THE SKY
THE TRUTH IT WILL NOT BE DENIED

THATS WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE
THATS WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE
THATS WHAT I'M DOIN' HERE
