Jodie Manross"Recently I saw a powerful documentary, The Devil Rides on Horseback, which is about the genocide happening in Darfur. I was inspired to write a
song about it."
Jodie Manross
Can I buy into this life
rent the air with my voice
for those whose life has seen suffering
and not enough joy

Open fields are burning
smoke filled skies
silence is haunting
so many have died

Chorus:
A heart that hurts
comes with a voice that chokes
and a life that can't complete its work
Can we finally be free of all these hurtful things
find strength in peace, strength in peace

Can I bring change
to so much is wrong
to a woman who has lost her husband, daughter, her son
this violence unsettling, it breaks my heart unending
can we get past where we've failed before

Chorus:
A heart that hurts
comes with a voice that chokes
and a life that can't complete its worth.
Can we finally be free of these hurtful things
find strength in peace, strength in peace

Strength in peace,
equality and justice,
Strength in peace,
equality and justice

Strength in peace

Strength in peace.
