"House Of Hope" as written by Toni Childs and David Ricketts....
Children laugh
Children cry
They're the future of our time
Will they hold us to blame
For all the things we've turned away
I don't like what I see now
I don't like where we're going
I don't like it, no
You and I, we're getting older now
You and I, who will show them
If we don't show them how

I want to know is it true
Is there a house of hope for me and you
I want to know is it true
Is there a house of hope for me and you

Children laugh
Children cry
They're the ones who will survive
Will they know what we've sold
Nature's gift we've turned for gold
I don't like what I see now
In my life, what I see now
I don't like where we're going
I don't like it, no
You and I, we're getting older now
You and I, who will show them
If we don't show them how

In this house of hope
In this house of hope
In this house of hope

You and I, we're getting older now
You and I, who will show them if we
Don't show them how

    General CommentWill the younger generation respect the babyboomer generation for the deterioration of culture, family values, fidelity, drugs, division, integrity in society. This song is 1991 but the lyrics are still as true as ever. If the elders dont show them nobody the right way and lessons learned, nobody will. Will the newer generation ever realize how screwed over they've been done? Is there hope or is there light ahead?
