What are the lyrics to Lights and Shadows?

Cry no more, cry no more

Than the one who lifts us on your shoulders
I can only hope once you fly you’ll be free

Cry no more, feeling all alone and insecure
You have been going through these stages
Now it’s time to turn the pages
We’re gonna stand in line
And not give up, but walk that road
That everybody goes
Through lights and shadows

Hurt nobody, did no crime
What’s with the universe?
Why you?

 

Cry no more, feeling all alone and…
