Billy by Jewel Kilcher I know little Billy from the small time town Ma and Pa meant well but they just weren't around But he would learn what little they had taught They told him, Heaven is hard but hell is not He remembers Papa's words before he died He said, word hard son, you must change the tide Before our people have liberation, you can never rest On your shoulders, lies our future boy, so do your best Do more than your best Never forgot the burden of his father's words He lost his own life and lived the world's No one told Billy theres somethings one man just can't do Takes time to forgive and equality to take more before it's through Just takes time But still Billy went down to the big time town Hoping to find some justice there, But God how it all seems cynical through the eyes of despair He no longer saw in color, he only saw black and white There were never people behind thses faces Until he realized one man can't win Can't win this fight So Billy went back to small time town got a life and he settled down He teaches children who never really thought He told them, Heaven is hard and Hell is Heaven is hard and hell is Hell is not worth fighting for.
