Not old enough the count the days
Not old enough to know your name
Not old enough to feel any hate or any pain
I guess what I'm saying

There's hope for you, sweet Elena

Right now life seems just a dream
Slow and steady swaying in the breeze
On one cold day that breeze will knock you to your knees
But I know you'll see

There's hope for you, sweet Elena

You'll fall in love then the world will break your heart
You'll reach for the stars but your dreams will fall apart
Amidst the broken pieces you'll discover who you really are

There's so much suffering you'll feel
There's only one way to escape the wheel
Love with no fear
It's the only thing that's truly real

There's hope for you, sweet Elena
