Lyrics:

There's blood in the streets
Everyone says it's not my fault
There's hate here for keeps
Think we'll keep it out with a wall

Do you see the walls growing inside
Between you and I
Why do you deny the holes in our minds
Put there by lies

But I'm counting on love
I'm counting on faith
I'm counting on us
To change today
And I'm just a little girl
In a great big world
But I believe
That people are better than they seem

So quick to scream
Hypocrisy
But then you turn around
Just to crucify me

Everybody screaming so loud
At the top of their lungs
Nobody's listening at all
What have we become?

But I'm counting on love
I'm counting on faith
I'm counting on us
To change today
And I'm just a little girl
In a great big world
But I believe
That people are better than they seem

No one is gonna save us
From the nightmares we make
Get yourself braver now
There's too much at stake
I'm so sick of divide
When we all want the same things inside…

I'm counting on love
I'm counting on faith
I'm trying to be
Better every day
I'm counting on love
I'm counting on truth
I'm counting on faith
God, I'm counting on you

And I'm just a little girl
In a great big world
But I believe
That people are better than they seem
And I'm just a little girl
But I'm gonna change the world
Wait and see

'cause I'm starting with me
I'm starting with me
