Voices of the Young
Words and Music by Bill Pere

We're waiting in the wings and listening as the voices sing
And someday, we'll be at center stage...
Promises have all been made, the same old songs have been replayed
But soon now, we'll turn a brand new page...

Give a song that's yet unsung to the voices of the young
Let them sing, let them soar, and every phrase that they borrow
They'll shape with their own word, Soon you'll know you've heard
A song of hope, a song of love that will bring us a brighter tomorrow
For all the world to share...

Conducting from a tired score, taking measures that have played before
But somehow, it seems it's getting worse...
It seems that no one would suppose that if we tried, we could compose
A new song, new chorus and new verse...

Give a song that's yet unsung to the voices of the young
Let them sing, let them soar, and every phrase that they borrow
They'll shape with their own word, Soon you'll know you've heard
A song of hope, a song of love that will bring us a brighter tomorrow
For all the world to share...
