  • Believe in your eyes

    By seeing the horizon

    Believe in your sense of smell

    By inhaling the breeze

    Believe in your ears

    By listening to the waves crash

    Believe in your lips

    By exhaling your voice

    Believe in extending your hands

    By touching the sand

    But believe that you are human

    As free as your eyes

    As free as your sense of smell

    As free as listening to the waves crash

    As free as your voice

    As free as your fingers

    And believe

    That what it takes

    Is the human heart

    To believe
