Jesse Ruben -- We Can

Sunday, May 13, 2012


I swear I am not going to make it a habit of glomming off YouTube, but I heard this on Sirius XM CoffeeHouse (31) on the way home from Mass this morning. Verse 1 got my attention. Verse 3 gave me goosebumps.

We Can by Jesse Ruben

A lot of people doubted me
They laughed in my face
They said there ain't no way
I would finish that race.
But I kept my head down
And laced up my shoes.

I ran a marathon
That no one thought I could.
I didn't always want to
But I said that I would
And I learned a lot
Of what I can do.

It doesn't matter if they don't believe,
It doesn't matter if they do not understand
Because every dream I'm trying to achieve
I can, I can, I can.
I can, I can, I can .

So make a list
And do not make it brief
Write down every single wish
And every little thing that you want.
Don't sell yourself short.
Don't ever hesitate
If people turn you down,
Do not settle, do not wait,
Don't ever turn around
Because you're almost there,
I swear, I swear it's yours.



And all that matters Is that there's no regrets.
It doesn't matter if they do not understand,
Because everything you want you have not gotten yet.
You can, you can, you can.
You can, you can, you can.

Right now on this planet
There are things that we can fix,
A lot of people going hungry,
A lot of them are kids
And it's so unfair.
They're scared and all alone.
Wars are being fought
Over land and over God
And we need a different plan
Because I think that we forgot
That we're all the same.
We're just love and blood and bones.

It doesn't matter if they think that we're wrong.
It doesn't matter if they do not understand
because every obstacle we need to overcome.
We can, we can, we can
We can, we can, we can

It doesn't matter if they think that we're wrong.
It doesn't matter if they do not understand
because every obstacle we need to overcome.
We can, we can, we can
We can, we can, we can
We can, we can, we can
We can, we can, we can.
