"Universal Child" as written by and Annie Lennox....
How many mountains must you face before you learn to climb?
I'm gonna give you what it takes, my universal child

I'm gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm
I'm gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm
And I can see you, you're everywhere, your portrait fills the sky
I'm gonna wrap my arms around you, my universal child

And when I look into your eyes, so innocent and pure
I see the shadow of the things that you've had to endure
I see the tracks of every tear that ran right down your face
I see the hurt, I see the pain, I see the human race
And I can feel you, you're everywhere, shining like the sun
I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone

How many tumbles must it take before you learn to fly?
I'm going to help you spread your wings, my universal child

I'm gonna try to find a way to keep you safe from harm
We're gonna be a special place, a shelter from the storm

I can feel you, you're everywhere, shining like the sun
And I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone
And I wished to god that kids like you could be like everyone
