LYRICS OF A VIDA DA GENTE PODE SER MELHOR
LUNA COHEN GRUP

Ter o Chagas não é o fim de tudo
Pois saiba que a vida da gente pode ser melhor
A esperança é o motor que move o mundo
Saúde é o mais importante pode acreditar

E existe um lugar
Que alguém pode te ajudar
Vamos juntos sem medo que tem muito chão pra caminhar
O medo não, não pode não
O medo não vai te dar a vida
Seu coração batendo são
Que você merece ser feliz
O medo não, não pode não
O medo não vai te dar a vida
Seu coração batendo são
Que você merece ser feliz. (bis)
