One Day Lyrics (by Chris Bryant)

He wakes up early in the morning
In an over-crowded chair
The refridgerator’s padlocked
The cupboards are all bare

Little Ivan dreams of learning
Little Ivan wants to read
But what sort of chance does
He have to succeed

Now Ivan’s heard of kindergarten
He proudly counts to three
But he has no idea of
How many meals a boy should eat

He dreams of being superman
To find his mom a home
Lord have mercy on your soul
If that don’t cut you right to the bone

Do you believe that one day
We can cast this care away
And the Ivans of this world
Will succeed or do you despair –
For the children?

A well intentioned gentleman,
Told me just the other day
You’re wasting your time, son,
You should just walk away

You could be doing things with your life
Money’s there to earn
But no matter how hard you try
These kids will never learn

I respectfully replied to him
Thank you much kind sir
I have given much thought
To your words

I could be at some law school
Or even on wall street
But each day I make a difference
And enough to eat.

Do you believe that one day
We can cast this care away
And the Ivans of this world
Will succeed or do you despair –
For the future?

Well it’s not a competition.
But it’s most definitely a race.
With you I have no quarell
Nor the time to waste

You see, we’re all in this together
For the the Ivans everywhere
And if we try our hardest
We might all learn to care

Do you believe that one day
We can cast this care away
And the Ivans of this world
Will succeed or do you despair –
One Day.
